Phnom Kulen Reclining Buddha

One of the most interesting sites at Phnom Kulen is the massive reclining Buddha at Preah Ang Thom, a 16th century Buddhist monastery. It is a sacred site and pilgrims from all over Cambodia come here to worship. The sculpture, posterior to the Angkor period, is the biggest of its kind in the country and is sculpted in the rocks rising eight meters high against the sky. You can reach it climbing a steep path near the northwest end of Phnom Kulen. From the top the view of the mountain range and the deep cambodian jungle are breathtaking.

You can combine a visit to this beautiful spot with a visit to other attractions at Phnom Kulen and other Siem Reap temples further afield, such as Banteay Srei.
