Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Neak Ta Dambang Daek (អ្នកតាដំបងដែក - Pronounced: Ah-nahk Ta Dom-bahng Dayk) the remains of a temple site dating to the Funan period, under King Jayavarman I. An inscription K.875 (one of the oldest inscriptions to date), with 18 lines of early Sanskrit was discovered here. It was commissioned by Kullaprabhavati, the chief queen to King Jayavarman where the Queen proclaims her love for her husband. The site now houses two small neak ta shrines with fragments of brick, sandstone and a sandstone pedestal, that is surrounded by a dried up moat with an east entrance causeway.
