Widely unknown is this little sight at the Cambodian/Vietnamese border at Phnom Dien/Tinh Bien. The five monuments on top of Phnom Bayang mountain consist of a main hindu temple from the early 7th century and four side temples. It’s said they were built as a victory memorial of the empire of water Chenla over the empire of Funan. There is no touristic infrastructure at the sight and very few visitors make their way up to the mountain. It’s rather an attraction for archeologists, historians and some who want to leave the beaten paths.
