Site Size & Condition: Small Ruin Phnom Changhan (ភ្នំចង្ហាន់ - Pronounced: P'nom Chang-han)

Curious site consisting of an isolated laterite terrace with no obvious traces of a shrine or any temple structures. The only artefact found on site is an ancient, partially eroded, sandstone seated Buddha image. It appears to be a Theravada Buddhist site, similar to many Post Bayon period sites at Angkor Thom, but in this case dating is impossible.

This site may possibly be within Preah Vihear province, verification is required.
