Old Catholic Church, Kampot

2.4
Take the long and winding road up to Old Catholic Church, a stone-clad, lonesome structure nestled in rough nature at the top of Bokor Mountain. Due to changing air temperature at this high spot, clouds and fog often settle giving the church an eerie atmosphere. A peek inside the dark, wet structure won't offer much- the building is abandoned and has no furniture or even windows. Climb the hill behind the building for a better view of the valley. Despite what the weather might be doing at the bottom of the mountain, consider bringing warm clothes or a raincoat for your ascent-- you'll find the weather is often colder at the top.

  • Inside completely naked, this church is not really worth a visit. When you drive past, you can see everything. It is only recommended to left the Church over to the vantage point to run high.

  • It is worth visiting for a couple of minutes, because it's not often you see such an abandoned Chapel in which candle and stand. As a minimum, be beautiful photos:)

  • This old church dates from the era of the french protectorate. Extremely small on the inside, the place that received the believers is even more. Two parts are behind the hotel. But also the kitchen, dependence and the toilet on the left side. Unfortunately his condition false understanding of the lifestyle of the priest who occupied the premises. In November 2016 we had found candles that are consumed on the hotel. Cambodian Buddhists are so religious that he engaged also in other religions! A portrait of Christ and Mary are on the back wall on the left of the Church it is possible to climb on a nice vantage point!
