Lovea Village

Lovea Village

Lovea is a village in Puok District and northwest of Siem Reap town. This small village is famous in its unique circular feature. Village itself is surrounded by round-shaped moat. Village was built probably before 500 A.D.

With circle of diameter approximately 300 meters it can recognize the ring moat mark around. Era it is presumed the time before even from 500, calls the similar circular village mark that the village is produced, that plural it exists near Lovea. In other things the many circular village mark remains even in the Vietnamese border, but as for this structure differs completely, (the ring moat lap is inside the wall).

(Note) leaving behind structure and the pond of the square which is visible in the lower part of the photograph above are thought those of Angkor period.
