At Phnom Sampeau, there is a killing field. The place used to be a picnic area of the locals before th Khmer Rouge period. Locals, especially popular among couples in love, would climb up on to the summit and enjoy the view and the serenity of Phnom Sampeau. However, it will never happen again.
Located in a cave, the killing field was quite horrifying. There was a big hole when you look up and Khmer Rough victims were killed as their heads were hit against the rocks and then thrown down from the hole into the cave.
Now, you may still be able to see some skulls and bones of the victims lying inside the cave although most were collated and deposited inside the big container as seen in the picture.
