  • The 6 km from Battambang tackle many tuk-tuk or Moto taxi and on foot, the trip is worth because you can experience live the Cambodian life and visit at least 2 active Temple on the way. There is an active Temple prior to the Killing Field. The pagoda with skulls u d bone and very impressive texts and relief scenes of all around makes one understand the history of the place. The texts are written in English and easy to understand.

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.
