One thought on “Inscriptions found on Phnom Tbeng Meanchey”

  1. Here’s what I can glean from the article.

    -First the full name of the site is Phnom Tbeng Meanchey
    -They are describing a trip to the site from 2012
    -There are a couple inscriptions, one is 1.27 meters by ០.87 meters the other is 1.27 meters, but part of this one was erased (?)
    -They seem to be in Sanskrit and I think that they are not newly discovered, as they mention inventory numbers for the inscriptions (Ka. 725 and Ka. 726), but I haven’t had any luck finding info on those numbers.
    -The inscriptions seem to be Angkorian and that mountain has been an important/sacred site for a long time, a place of meditation etc.

    I could be misunderstanding some of this, hopefully a native speaker can correct me and add some additional information!
