Site Size & Condition: Wat Wat Svay Damnak (វត្តស្វាយណាក់ - Pronounced: Woht S'vay Dom-nakh)

The site of a modern temple in the small remote village of Svay Damnak Thmei. The wat houses a small collection of about ten sandstone boundary markers with depictions of standing guardians and seated Buddha's with nine headed nagas. We are unsure as to where these boundary stones originate from, as there aren't too many reported ancient sites in the vicinity.

The nearest ancient site is Tuol Prasat Svay Damnak located to the west, which is simply a laterite terrace that housed a few statues and an inscription.

The boundary stones are likely to date between the 12th and 13th century.
