Site Size & Condition: Medium Prasat Prasat Krapom Chhouk (ប្រាសាទ​ក្រពុំ​ឈូក - Pronounced: Pra-saht Kror Pohm Choohk)

Is one of the 102 Arogyasala or Hospital Chapels that King Jayavarman VII commissioned along his ancient highways that spanned out of Angkor Thom to the outer reaches of the empire. Oddly enough this is the only ruin in the area for a 15km radius, unless they just haven't been discovered yet.

The site consists of a central laterite tower, with a small library to the southeast surrounded by a laterite enclosure with an entrance pavilion. Further to the east is a man-made reservoir, along with an additional square reservoir to the south/southwest.
