Site Size & Condition: Small Tuol Tuol Koh Krieng Khang Tbong (ទួលកោះគ្រៀងខាងត្បូង - Pronounced: Toohl K'oh Kree-eng Khang T'bouhng)

This site has been documented to contain 2 mounds, however we have decided to split the entries as two separate sites due to the fact that they are about 150m apart. The other site Tuol Koh Krieng lays about 150m northeast of this location, however the precise location needs to be verified. Both sites representing an earth mound of a brick shrine foundation with an east-facing shrine built directly onto the underlying rock. It is possible that at this location, locals have built a makeshift tin roof as a small neak ta shrine.

Neither display any visible remains apart from bricks but the site is the source of 2 spectacular female god statues; one now in the National Museum of Cambodia and the other in the Musee Guimet.
