Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Tuol Koh Kou (ទួលកោះគូ - Pronounced: Toohl Koh! Koo)

Raised, rectangular area surrounded by traces of a moat featuring probable east and west causeways and showing an alignment of approximately 95 degrees. The substantial-sized mound is divided into two sections on the east-west axis, hence its name which translates as 'two islands' or 'island pair'. Whether this originally corresponded to two separate, adjacent towers is hard to tell as the site is today occupied by a farm and visible vestiges are limited to ancient brick fragments.

The 'islands' are still used today for burials so please be discreet if you're poking around.
