Site Size & Condition: Small Tuol Prasat Kandaol Dom Khang Tboung (ប្រាសាទកណ្តោលដុំខាងត្បូង - Pronounced: Pra-saht Kon-dowl Doum! Khang T'bouhng)

The site of a tiny ruin consisting of a sandstone gateway and brick piles located on a small, wooded, moat-surrounded island. (Eastern and western causeways are under water for much of the year.) It seems the site would originally have consisted of a single, east-facing, brick tower on a small platform. Too little remains to date the site and style although. given the location, a 9th-century, Shivaite temple would be a safe bet.
