The locals call it Taomai Temple, a place where temples and exhibition halls merge. The human bones are placed in the window, and the monks are working nearby. This is a silent monument, showing a piece of history in multiple languages.
The first time I saw it, it was a bit shocking. It was a temple with monks here and a massacre memorial. It reflects a period of history in the Khmer Rouge period. There are many skeletons, photo exhibitions, and many Japanese and Korean travels. Group come.
If you have time to visit Siem Reap, you should visit Wat Thmey, which is famous for its killing fields. This is a memorial place and it has a different style in this area. There are English posters here, so you can learn about history and the Khmer Rouge regime. I never thought that there is a small killing field in Siem Reap. I visited this place as part of a city tour. No admission fee is required here. There is a monument from the Polport period with bones of people from the massacre. When I visited here during the Khmer New Year, commemorative activities were held here. I also witnessed people's charity and worship to the child monks. If you don't have a chance to see the real killing fields in Phnom Penh, this is a good place to substitute.
It is disheartening to know how cruel and unfair treatment the people got in the past. I would encourage more people to go there to know the history and pray for the deceased.
Truly depressing place, until you spy the local wildlife
A memorial dedicated to the war crimes of the Khmer rouge regime. There are several memorials all over Cambodia.
One of Siam Reap's modern temples. Serves as a memorial to the atrocities of the Cambodian civil war. From here we knew the war is cruel and hope this beautiful is forever peace.
