Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Phon Sao Eth (ໂພນສາວແອດ - Pronounced: Pon Sao Et)


This mound site lies just outside of the ancient city of Shrestapura, to the west, and on the north side of the road now linking Muang Kao and Champassak with the main Wat Phu site. The site features a low but substantial-sized earth mound which reveals sandstone blocks as well as several intact pedestals. A square pond, still seasonally filled, is situated immediately to the east and both features have a slightly southwest-northeast alignment.

Although unlisted on the CISARK website the site has clearly been surveyed and we'd assume that any other unearthed artefacts from the site would now be found in the nearby Wat Phu Museum?
