Site Size & Condition: Destroyed Site Size & Condition: Unconfirmed Site Size & Condition: Ancient Reservoir C0213008 (មិនស្គាល់​​ - Pronounced: Unknown) it is not known what is in situ.

According to satellite imagery there appears to be a small 260m x 130m rectangular man-made reservoir in the rice paddy fields northwest of Phnom Cheung Tinh. There could be a 'possible' squarish mound site 150m southwest of the reservoir, though we are a little skeptical as the alignment doesn't seem to match between the two.

Though recent satellite imagery there doesn't appear to be any traces of a reservoir anymore, but if we look back at old satellite imagery one can see the perimetre outline of the former reservoir. The size of the reservoir clearly indicates a 2:1 ratio which was common in ancient times.

Please review the image below to see the comparison over the years.


If you happen to be in the area and visit this site, we would love to find out more about the site such as the name of the site, the size and condition of the site, what is still in situ and a few photos of the site.

We highly recommend that you consult a local guide or villager to escort you to the site, as there is a possibility of mines or UXO's when visiting remote and secluded sites. If you do decide to venture out on your own, please follow the beaten path and becareful!

Beyond Angkor does not guarantee that you will find any remains at this site. The site has been listed based a probability of a site existing at this particular location. We are not equip with 1.5 million dollar LIDAR equipment like the professional archaeologists, to scan the landscape for ancient formations, instead we have simply used the naked eye on satellite imagery to determine these 'probable' historic sites. We are pleased to say that a large number of sites we seeked remotely from the comforts of our own home, have been confirmed to be in fact 'tuols'. As sites are confirmed by explorers and reported, we have then appropriately relisted the sites with the local name and details of what have been found in situ. These sites can be found in the category No CISARK.

Beyond Angkor and the team at Beyond Angkor are not liable for any damages or injuries sustained when seeking out any historical sites listed, especially of these unknown sites. Please ensure you have the relevant travel insurance for your journey and let someone know where you are headed each day.
