Inscriptions dating back to 932 CE have been found here, scattered across 42 major structures within the complex. The most notable landmark is Prasat Krahom, known for its red bricks.

  • Good afternoon! Take the car for the entire day, left hours in 8 a.m., first stopped at Beng Melea, resembled there chasochek along with 5-6 groups from China, and then another hour and we got to Koh Ker. In March the entire road looks very green and lush, along her Palm fields, watched only plantations planted and on adult trees cashews, black pepper with a height of 3-4 metres, local potatoes planted pieces of stick, rather than tubers. On the road life boils, mopeds, tractors, beskapotno-beskabinnye trucks exotic years of manufacture ... At the entrance to the complex of Koh Ker redhead starts priming, it winds through the Woods, showing that one almost ruined Prasat, then another and finally the means at central square pyramid we raised in the hour of the day and despite the heat, the people was there. We pofotografirovali a group of four Germans, then they us, then poljubeznichali and stayed at pyramid ones. Twenty minutes were enjoying views of all parts of the world I was at the pyramids in Egypt, but Koh Ker is quite a different, enjoyable, memorable and powerful place
