Ancient House

Located in Wat Kor Village in Battambang province. There is the “homeland” for many Khmer traditional houses, most of them built from 1920-1956. An interesting house that belonged to Mr. Nuon Chea, Brother Number 2 of the Pol Pot regime, survives there today. But this house no longer belongs to his family. It belongs to a local people bought this house in late 1980s from someone else.

This house was built during French colonial era although the exact date is unkhown. In the spite of its age, the oroginal, robust contruction still remains intact.
