From Beyond Angkor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Unknown.jpg Sites classified as Unknown are those at present uncatalogued on existing registries such as CISARK. The team at Beyond Angkor have scoured Google satellite images and have discovered hundreds if not thousands of previously undocumented or uncatalogued possible historical sites such as mounds, moated sites and reservoirs. Therefore we do not have names for the majority of these sites, and are hoping that these will entice Beyond Angkor explorers to venture off the beaten path and possibly find a hidden treasure.

Majority of these sites, have clear landscape formations to denote a possible moated temple or reservoir, however we have also included some likely square shaped mounds found in the middle of rice paddy fields, as it is a little odd to have a random mound in an area that could be useful for farming and growing rice..

If you happen to visit any of these 'unknown' sites, and determine that the site is of no historical value, please document what you see, whether you asked local villagers, and possibly take a few photos and post a comment on the unknown temple page. One of the admins will review or get in touch with you to discuss and determine whether we remove the said 'unknown' site listing.


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.
