The Hālau - ʻAha Hūi Lānakila

In Cambodia, some 40 kilometers (24.85 miles) northeast of Angkor, is the mountain range of Phnom Kulen. This sandstone plateau is a sacred site to Hindus and Buddhists. In addition to a giant statue of the Buddha, there are images sacred to Hinduism carved into a nearby riverbed. In the vicinity of Phnom Kulen there are also many temples which have been covered in vegetation and only discovered by archaeologists using 3-D mapping techniques.
