In fact, each country has its own unique attractions, which are more or less known. But such interesting places in Asia as the ancient capital of the Khmer empire of Cambodia are not what many travelers are not available, moreover, most of the Cambodians have not even heard of this place. And it is not surprising, since after military operations in this country, many areas continue to be mined, resulting in a journey to the ancient city of Koh Kehr becomes very dangerous.

The ancient city of Koh Kehr is attractive both for its history and architecture at the same time. Here are unique monuments of Asia, whose age is more than one thousand years. Noteworthy is the fact that this city was very quickly built and remained the capital of the Khmer Empire for only 20 years. By area it is an impressive plot of land measuring 5 * 7 kilometers. In the ancient Khmer capital, there were many buildings, unfortunately, to this day many of them have turned into ruins.

With the cessation of hostilities in the country, tourists are increasingly interested in the sights of Asia, especially those that are hidden in impenetrable jungles.

Inside the pyramid is a large hole, because of which it is called the pyramid of death, because Still none of the daredevil daredevils there did not return.

Because north-east of Siem Reap for 120 km, where there is Koh Kehr, you will have to travel by yourself.
