Point of Interest
“Wat Thmey / Killing Fields A visit to Wat Thmey is recommended to all travellers who are interested in learning about the tragic destiny of millions of Cambodians who vanished under the Khmer Rouge. Wat Thmey is also known as Siem Reap’s Killing Fields with a pagoda and a memorial stupa reminding of the events between 1975 and 1979. Under Pol Pot’s regime, the pagoda served as a prison. Many innocent people were kept and tortured here until they confessed a crime they did not commit. They were then killed and buried nearby. Some of the remains of these victims have been exhumed and placed in the memorial stupa near the pagoda. Together with photos, they share bone-chilling insights into the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. While the memorial is significantly smaller in scale compared to the memorial in the Tuol Sleng (S21) Prison and Choeung Ek killing fields in Cambodia’s capital, it still serves as an important reminder for all local Cambodian’s living in the area. Today, the pagoda serves again as a monastery. There is also an orphanage and school. Despite its dark past, the laughter of the children and the sounds of daily Cambodian life in the background prove that the people living in this area are leaving the dark past behind and move forward.”
