Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Wat Ang Popeay (វត្តអង្គពពាយ - Pronounced: Wot Ong Poh-peay)

Active Buddhist monastery with a vihara aligned some 5 degrees north of east-west and enclosed by traces of a possible moat. (The east side still contains water.) The compound also includes brick and schist fragments, along with a fragment of a Sambor Prei Kuk lintel and is the point of origin of an inscribed stele dating from the 7th or early 8th centuries. (Its present whereabouts is unconfirmed.)
