Phnom Sampeau, Battambang
(3.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
The killing caves of Phnom Sampeau 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 Phnom Sampeau and other Battambang attractions using our handy Battambang trip itinerary planner.

  • Especially the scenic view of rice fields complex over the cave where the khmer Rouge massacred civilians, a chapel in remembrance of the massacre perpetrated, a Buddhist temple, unesco (...) plus some stupa Sin really is filth

  • 森普山的門票是2美元,購票後可從票亭的左邊石級上山,沿左邊石級一直上到山頂是一座漂亮的寺廟,從這裏向山下望,是一片綠油油的田野,風景不錯。寺廟旁向下的石級是去一個天然大山洞的,裏面有兩尊石像。山洞的另一邊沒有明顯的路,只可回頭走。從車路一路往山下走,會經過另外兩個景點,其中一個是殺人洞,裏面有佛像,亦放有被赤柬殺害者的遺骸。 
  • This place doesn't look very exciting from afar,but up close and it is fabulous.Really good art work around the temple. Do yourself a favour get up close and personal.
