Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Tuol Kamnap Trapeang Prei (ទួលកំណប់ត្រពាំងព្រៃ - Pronounced:Tool Kam-nap Tra-peng Prey)

A small group of earth mounds representing the foundations of 1 or possibly 2 brick shrines with man-made ponds lying to the east (Trapeang Prei) and west. A 9 gods sculpture, as well as 2 inscriptions, were found here. Inscription K.127 - dated 682-83 - is significant as it is said to feature the first known textual representation of zero to be found on an Angkorian or pre-Angkorian inscription. The Sanskrit-inscribed stele is today housed in the National Museum of Cambodia.

The second inscription was dated to the early 13th century and is reportedly kept by the Angkor Conservancy.
