This crumbling temple is across the new Mekong bridge from Stung Treng. It is hardly worth the effort for the casual visitor, but temple fiends may feel the urge to tick it off. Thala Boravit was an important Chenla-period trading town on the river route connecting the ancient city of Champasak and the sacred temple of Wat Phu with the ancient cities of Sambor Prei Kuk (Isanapura) and Angkor Borei. For all its past glories, there is very little to see today.
