A small path is leading from the ring-road to the Prasat
= elephant). This sanctuary has an enclosure and is standing on a high platform. On each of the four sides is a staircase with about ten steps. Totally eight stone lions flanked once the stairs but only one of them is at the original place. On all four corners of the platform once stood a beautiful elephant sculpture but only two of them remain. The sanctuary built of brick is in a good condition. A Sanskrit inscription found at this temple gives evidence for the erstwhile lingam on the top of the pyramid (Prang).
Mountains ("Tà Lơn" in Vietnamese) have long been venerated as to be sacred by both, Khmer and Vietnamese people. A great number of Vietnamese mystics and ascetics such as Cử Đa, Ngô Văn Chiêu and Huỳnh Phú Sổ had lived in the area during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Preah Khan Kompong Svay covers an area about 5 kilometers square, is oriented to north-east and has four concentric enclosures. It was provided with water by a large baray (2.8 km by 750 m but almost completely dried at present), which crosses the eastern side. On an artificial island ("mebon") in the middle of the baray there is "Preah Thkol" (), a cruciform temple in sandstone with a standing central towe. In the southeastern corner stands the remains of the 15 metres high pyramid of "Preah
", with laterite enclosure and two stone elephants (
means elephant) at its upper corners. The other two elephants are exhibited at the National Museum of Phnom Penh and Guimet Museum in Paris.
is a species of megophryid toad endemic to Cambodia. It is only known from its type locality, Bokor Plateau in the Dâmrei Mountains (=Elephant Mountains) of southern Cambodia. The species description was published in 2011 but was based on samples collected by Malcolm Arthur Smith in 1914. The species has not been observed in surveys ever since, although this might reflect seasonal variability. The know specimens measure (female, holotype ) and (male, paratype) in snout–vent length.
Several inscriptions were found which mention Koh Ker as capital of the empire so in Siem Reap, Battambang, Takeo and Kampong Cham (city). From inscriptions discovered at Koh Ker one can conclude that more than ten thousand people lived at Koh Ker when it was capital (928 – 944 AD). The inscriptions explain too how manpower was organised: taxes in form of rice were raised in the whole country and served to provide the workers who came from different provinces. An inscription at Prasat
says that the shrine on the top of the state temple (Prang) houses a lingam of about and that the erection of this Shiva-symbol gave a lot of problems. A Sanskrit inscription at Prasat Thom gives evidence of the consecration of a Shiva-lingam 921 AD which was worshipped under the name of Tribhuvaneshvara ("Lord of the Threefold World") (Jacques 2007).
According to an older established interpretation, Jayavarman II was supposed to be a prince who lived at the court of Sailendra in Java and brought back to his home the art and culture of the Javanese Sailendran court to Cambodia. This classical theory was revisited by modern scholars, such as Claude Jacques and Michael Vickery, who noted that Khmer called "chvea" the Chams, their close neighbours. Moreover, Jayavarman's political career began at Vyadhapura (probably Banteay Prei Nokor) in eastern Cambodia, which makes more probable long time contacts with them (even skirmishes, as the inscription suggests) than a long stay in distant Java. Finally, many early temples on Phnom Kulen shows both Cham (e.g. Prasat
Krap) and Javanese influences (e.g. the primitive "temple-mountain" of Aram Rong Cen and Prasat Thmar Dap), even if their asymmetric distribution seems typically khmer.
