Khett Kampong Thum Things to Do: 16 reviews and 56 photos
The Lion Temple (C1) is essentially the only tower still existing in the Central Group. One of the girls guiding us said that the temples were gone from "nature and bombing." Sadly, the US Air Force bombed this site during the 1970's while supporting the Lon Nol government's unsuccessful fight against the Khmer Rouge. C1 is named for the Chenla-style stone lions that guard the door on the east side of the temple. See also a travelogue with more scenes of the Lion Temple architecture.
