Wat Neang Kok

Koh Kong City

This rocky promontory on the right (western) bank of the Koh Poi River is decorated with life-size statues demonstrating the violent punishments that await sinners in the Buddhist hell. This graphic tableau belongs to Wat Neang Kok, a Buddhist temple. To get here, cross the bridge, turn right after 800m, and proceed to the statues, which are 150m beyond a modern temple.
