  • With a tuk tuk we took a tour of Battambang until we reached this place of remembrance of the victims tortured and murdered by the Khmer Rouge. I had the impression of an abandoned place, no one checking, just a descriptive sign of the area, just us present. However, a visit is a must.

  • Definitely worth a visit. Doesn’t compare to PP. But there are some excellent temples across the street  more »

  • An active temple with a horrofic history. The older temple around this area was used as a place to keep prisoners during the Khmer Rouge era. This is a good place to see before visiting the "Killing Fields" which are located right next to the Wat Samrong Knong.
  • An ancient Buddhist pagoda. The former main temple is on the process of putting its name into the World Heritage list. The temple itself is full of glories and horror. During Khmer Krohorm period, the temple was used as a captive for prisoners who were mostly ordinary people. 10,008 people lost their lives. The compound is tranquil and filled with calm after the tragedy.
