Description

Cette contrée forestière est d'une grande importance historique, appelée aussi le château d'eau d'Angkor, elle offre de nombreux sites archeologiques (Temples, enceintes,sites rupestres,douves et bassins); dans un numéro special d'Arts Asiatiques (1973), "Les sites archeologiques de la region du Bhnam Gulan", Jean Boulbet et Bruno Dagens ont denombrés quarante deux ensembles monumentaux. Il faut plus particulièrment souligner le remarquable site de Kpal Sban ou la rivière aux mille linga qui fut découverte en février 1968 et qui se développe sur près de 200 mètres.
