Pagoda In Angkor

Preah Ang Sang Tuk Pagoda

About wat Preah Ang Sang Tuk

     Preah Ang Sang Touk Pagoda is an old pagoda located in Trapeang Ses village, Kork Chak commune, Siem Reap City, Siem Reap Province. The pagoda complex is obscured by the Angkor Thom forest, surrounded by forest along the road to the East Gate of Angkor Thom behind the northern group of temples and 13 km from Siem Reap City.

Before 1975, Preah Ang Sang Touk Pagoda had a temple and a large statue of the Buddha, in which Buddhists often light incense candles to worship for peace and prosperity. After 1979, when Buddhism revived, Buddhists cleared the forest on the site of the old temple and established a pagoda named Preah Ang Sang Touk.

By 1986, this pagoda was first organized and has grown steadily with the support of Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen.
