Phnom Kulen Reclining Buddha

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. It can be reached by climbing a steep path near the northwest end of Phnom Kulen.
