Site Size & Condition: Medium Ruin Prasat Tro Moung (ប្រាសាទទ្រមូង - Pronounced: Pra-saht T'rau Moohng)

Is the western of Jayavarman VII's 4 Chapels of the Hospitals situated some 500m west of Angkor Thom Khloung Thvear Ta Keo, the city's west gopura. The site is in poor condition with little more than a door frame standing amid a pile of sandstone blocks. Various carved pieces lie on the ground in front of the ruin including sections of pediment and lintel.

Rarely visited site and attractive forest setting.

We suspect that the inscription K.905 should actually be K.605 and may have been a mistype on CISARK's behalf, awaiting on verification.
