Kbal Spean River

Good To Know About Kbal Spean River

Kbal Spean is the famous river of a 1,000 lingas at Phnom Kulen. These lingas (phallic symbols) were evidently carved into the bedrock of the river so they could ‘fertilize’ the waters flowing to the fields of Angkor. There are also carvings of Buddha and Buddhist images in the rocks that were carved at a later date than the lingas. It is a fairly easy 45-minute walk uphill though the woods to get to the river.
