Hello from Central Cambodia,
I visited two Buddhist sites here in Kampong Thom.
Phnom Santuk is a cultural and natural site located in Ko Koh village, Ko Koh commune, Santuk district, about 17 kilometers south of the Kampong Thom provincial town.
The ancient carvings and the modern pagoda are located on the top of the mountain. (I learned in my research that the Khmer word “phnom” means “mountain.”)
Shall I climb the 800+ steps to the summit? Or just take a taxi.
