    Phnom Chisor, Phnom Penh City

OVERVIEW

Phnom Chisor is a historical site located in Dokpor village, approximately 62km from Phnom Penh. It was built in the early 11th century by King Suryavarman and sits on top of a hill requiring visitors to climb 412 steps to the summit. A basic level of fitness is required to undertake this tour.

The views alone make the climb worth the journey as it affords visitors a panoramic view of Takeo Province with rice paddies stretching for kilometers. It is framed on 3 sides by buildings of a modern pagoda. Inside the main temple there are Buddhist statues worshipped by the monks and lay pilgrims. An enclosure, partially ruined surrounds the ancient complex. In 1973 the area of Phnom Chisor was devastated by an US bomb attack and rebuilt in 1979.
