History


Description

Phnom Sorsia Cave is actually a cave temple, the cave was used to construct a Buddhist Wat. The huge stalagmite inside the first chamber is believed to resemble the head of a white elephant. Thats why this cave is also called Rung Damrey Sor (White Elephant Cave). There is also a huge colony of bats and a nice view on the surrounding rice fields. This cave is called 100 Rice Field Cave because of the view.
