On a peaceful lakeside site is a Spartan structure with a bunker in the basement, five childish wall murals downstairs (one of Angkor Wat, four of Prasat Preah Vihear) and three more murals upstairs, including an idyllic wildlife scene. About the only furnishings that weren’t looted are the floor tiles .

Swampy Ta Mok’s Lake was created on Brother Number Five’s orders, but the water killed all the trees, their skeletons a fitting monument to the devastation he and his movement left behind. In the middle of the lake, due east from the house, is a small brick structure, an outhouse and all that remains of Pol Pot’s residence in Anlong Veng.

To get to Ta Mok’s house, head north from the bridge on NH67 for 600m, turn right and continue 200m past the so-called Tourism Information hut.
