Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Prasat Snuol (ប្រាសាទស្នួល - Pronounced: Pra-saht S'nuol)

The remains of four brick temples surrounded by a moat with an east entrance causeway and 50m to the east is a man-made reservoir. In situ one can find a scattering of fragmented bricks, fragments of sandstone blocks and at least 3 pedestals and a fragment of a carved colonette. The location of the lintels are unknown, however one may be stored at the village temple (Wat Sangkae Snuol Koh Kaev Rangsei) south of the moated site.

Two inscriptions were discovered here on two stones K.898 and K899. They weren't actually inscriptions so to speak, but old Khmer letters, sort of similar to the symbols found on the modern day Cambodian Yantras.

Located about 75m to the east is a rectangular man-made reservoir Baray Prasat Snuol measuring at 215m x 130m.
