Sorry guys, I have to admit I have no idea what these are but I rough have an idea they are stone with carving of early days symbols that derived from early Hindu writings and also has Arabic influences on it which they called it Kawi. Tha't all I know and if you know more than me, please send email to me, thank you. I read from Lonely Planet guidebook where thay said this language still spoken nowadays in southern Thailand somewhere Yala province, any of you who love history should try that location including myself.
"....the oldest tombstones testify to a progressive transition from one culture to another. The stones of Minye Tujoh (Aceh, 1380) and Pengkalan Kempas (Malay Peninsula, 1467) bear Malay texts still written in script of a type derived from India....." taken from:
