· Adapting the architecture of mid 11th century and the end of 12th century the temple was first built by king Ut Tak Yea Tit Tya Varman II (1050-1066) and then was finally built by the king Jarvarman VII (1181-1219). The temple is located on the top of approximate 400-meter mountain at Kon Tey 2 commune, Ba Nan District, in 25-kilometer distance from the provincial town by the provincial Road No 155, parallel to Sang Ke River. At the mountain's valley, there are Ku Teuk and two main natural wells, namely: Bit Meas and Chhung or Chhung Achey.
· This Angkor-era mountaintop temple is definitely worth a look. At the top are beautiful views of the winding Sangker River set amidst sugar palm trees, rice fields and small villages. To the south you will see a mountain range that features a crocodile shaped mountain. The temple itself is beautiful looking from the ground as well as the top. The structures are pretty much intact, but unfortunately like so many Khmer ruins, they have fallen victim to massive looting. Still, there are some interesting works to see. There are five temple structures, like Angkor, with the middle being the largest. (Use caution around the entrance to the center structure - there is a large hanging block - a headache-in-waiting for some poor soul).
· As with Preah Vihear Temple (close to the Thai border in the province of the same name), there are a couple of big guns on the mountaintop next to the ruins. The guns are still pointing down at the surrounding area as they were during the more recent years of the government of Khmer Rouge skirmishes. It's part of the sad irony of Cambodia that a place built for worship, harmony and tranquility was utilized as a place for making war. Looking down the hillside to the southwest you can see more of the ruins. As always, if you go looking around, STAY ON THE WORN PATHWAYS AND TRAILS - there may still be undiscovered landmines.

· We start our trip at 3:35 PM and finish around 7 PM. We drive along the main road with the tuk-tuk around 13 km . Along the way you can enjoy the beautiful view and the fresh wind in your hair while driving in a comfortable tuk-tuk car . You will also see people doing a rat BBQ, you can taste it if you really like. Fair enough if you just want to take pictures.
· When we arrive at Pnomh Sampouv we take the climb by foot or by motor bike. At Pnomh Sampouv we will visit the canons, the Buddha and the stupha. The stupha is a memorial place in the killing cave where people were killed during the regime of the Khmer Rouge.
· Monkey time! You will have the chance to see monkeys. These are not scared of people so you can feed them with bananas and nuts! After that we go down and we will wait at the bat cave for the bats to come out, looking for food. It's not hundred, not thousand but hundreds of thousands of bats that will fly out of the cave, a very impressive natural phenomenon. Then there's one more attraction before driving back to the city, which is the beautiful sunset. Do not forget your camera!

· Pagoda: After walking for about 15 minutes through the jungle, we will reach the middle of mountain where we will see a pagoda. It has many beautiful paintings that tell the story of the Buddha.
