Prey Kuk Sambor temples

Today I had one of the most wonderful archaeological visit of my life. I discovered Prey Kuk Sambor temples and I am going to write a lot about this experience and the ones to come. I am already planning an expedition with my students of communication of Sihanoukville. The place is undiscovered by tourism. It has its advantage and disadvantage. It is easy to reach it from Kompong Thom downtown (30 minutes by car) and it keeps wonders that show how little we know of the ancient Cambodian times.

We left at 8:15 from our hotel (Sambo Village, a place I will mention after). You take the road to Preah Vihia Province. The road still unpaved, but they are working. Ten minutes after you get the junction to Prey Kuk Sambor village. There is a very noticeable sign at the right.

Ten minutes after you reach the Atsu village, a place that honor a Japanese UN observers who was killed during the war in the place. After I will come back to that event. Ten minutes after you reach the complex.

We spent morning and after going around the temples. There is a good guide in the place. The traditional restaurant is just well recommended.

I put the picture of Prasat Da´am Chrey, an amazing temple, to introduce my reports about every place I saw there.
