via Phnom Penh Post, 05 Feb 2019: Villagers in Battambang say they have discovered a temple, but it may also well be a natural rock formation.

Villages herding their cows and buffalos deep in the forest stumbled upon an old temple in the Tumnop Tabin area in Sampov Loun district’s Chrey Seima commune in Battambang province.

However, Sampov Loun district governor Ngeav Bunyeang said on Monday that officials could not confirm if the temple was an ancient structure.

He said the Spean Yol villagers who live close to the forest found a pile of stones in a structure resembling that of ancient temples and named it Prasat Neang Kong Hing.

Upon inspection, the authorities said the stones were ancient and had degraded. However, they could not confirm if it was part of an ancient temple.
