Description

Oudong was founded by King Srei Soryopor also known as (Barom Reachea IV) in 1601, after the abandonment of Longvek. Under the reign of King Ang Duong (1841-1850), he constructed canals, terraces, bridges and erected hundreds of pagodas in this region. Oudong was later abandoned by King Norodom in 1866 in favor of Phnom Penh. In 1977 the Khmer Rouge destroyed many of the remaining temples, monuments, and structures in the area.
