This cliff-top Khmer sanctuary is still at the centre of a decades-long struggle between Thailand and Cambodia for ownership. Although registered by the Fine Arts Department and announced in the Royal Gazette in 1940, a World Court ruling in 1962 gave the disputed territory to Cambodia. Visitors to this area must contact the ranger unit stationed nearby and pay border-crossing fees as well as access fees. The complex is located at the top of mountain, at an elevation of 500 metres.
