Let Phnom Chisor carry you into the past. The 11th century temple stands partially in ruins, made of laterite and carved sandstone bricks, but it was once a great shrine built by king Suryavarman I dedicated to Shiva and Vishnu. Visit the modern pagoda surrounding the main temple sitting on the east side of the hill and see the art monks and pilgrims worship. Mythological scenes cover the walls, but the gold statue of Muchalinda--who has seven heads sheltering Buddha--stands as the main attraction. Learn about the history of Buddhism while you absorb the peaceful atmosphere around the temple. For Phnom Chisor and beyond, use our Rovieng trip planner to get the most from your Rovieng vacation.
