Ek Phnom Pagoda, Battambang

(260+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
The killing caves of Ek Phnom Pagoda give a grim insight into the atrocities committed by one of history's most brutal regimes, the Khmer Rouge. Enter the temple built in the complex of caverns to begin the chilling tour. The cool breeze blowing through the caves, the golden reclining Buddha statue, and the cages containing victims' bones create a haunting atmosphere. Outside, see a mannequin display depicting the brutal and creative ways the government used to torture people, a harrowing finish to the cave experience. Work out when and for how long to visit Ek Phnom Pagoda and other Battambang attractions using our handy Battambang trip itinerary planner.

  • Quite beautiful and exceptional for the beautiful paintings on the ceiling. Its really close to a beautiful ruin and a giant Buddha, so this is a great stop to make if you're in the area.
  • This place is very old history in Cambodia.
  • Simply a pile of rocks and a Wat, but the ride to and from Battambang on motor scooter was awesome.
  • Ancient temple to explore more after angkorian sites
  • Great view.... The old pagoda.
