Site Size & Condition: Carvings Voeun Kuon (វឿនគួន - Pronounced: Voeun Khuon)

An unusual site consisting of a collection of carved sandstone rocks on the edge of the Mekong River, generally visible during low water level periods only. These include two crocodiles and a turtle plus sun and moon images. (Needless to say, the small carvings are seriously eroded.) Scattered bricks on the adjacent riverbank indicate the possible location of a brick shrine. (IK 232.03)
