Foot Of Phnom Beng Wat Bak Kam

Foot of Phnom Beng Wat Bak Kam:

Wat Bak Kam is located along Tbeng mountain foot in Bak Kam village, Chhien Muk commune, Tbeng Meanchey district, about 17 kilometers west of the provincial town. The pagoda is 1,000 meters long and 400 meters wide. The site offers nice view, forest and fresh air year round. Local villagers usually visit this site during holidays or national festivals.

Besides the pagoda, there is a large rock called Tham Peung Angkam. According to local people, in the past, because of the failure of war with neighboring country, the Khmer commander and his troops hid under that rock. They husked rice under that rock and left the chaff. Later, local villagers found a lot of chaff under the rock, which is why the place is called Thma Peung Angkam. The rock is also believed to be an important worship site.
