Takeo Travel Guides

 Information of a General Nature

 Takeo Province is frequently referred to as the "cradle of Cambodian civilization." It is home to a number of significant pre-Angkorian sites that were constructed between the 5th and 8th centuries. Takeo town, the provincial capital, is a laid-back location with some natural and man-made beauty. The scenic river and lake area, which faces a pleasant town parkway, is where the natural beauty is. A kingdom that once had its heart here was probably referred to as Water Chenla because the low-lying area appears to encompass a significant portion of the surrounding province. There is by all accounts water wherever in the encompassing wide open during the stormy season.

The majority of the man-made beauty derives from a network of canals and waterways that once connected Vietnamese towns, villages, rivers, and the surrounding countryside. Angkor Borei town, which is connected to Takeo town by water, may have been the center of the Funan Empire. The Cambodians refer to it as the "Cradle of Khmer Civilization." The Funan empire, which is much older than Angkor, flourished from the 1st to the 6th centuries and covered a vast territory from South Vietnam through Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Strong, silver and silks were exchanged overflow in the realm, or, as some say, the series of fiefdoms.

Even though Cambodians say Funan was made by Khmers, Vietnam, which is next door, says they were the ones who made Funan. Archeologists from the College of Hawaii of the USA have made research excursions to Angkor Borei trying to sort out the set of experiences and story, and story, as well as relics, of the Funan time frame. In a bizarre twist of recent history, Reuters News Service reported at the beginning of November 1999 that locals saw the research team excavating ancient artifacts and concluded that the items must be valuable, so they began excavating and looting items from the area. Fortunately, it appears that the Cambodian government is quickly addressing the issue in an effort to preserve this significant piece of Khmer heritage.

That was not the first time that the locals had a negative impact on the process of putting ancient history back together. In the recent past, much of what was left in the form of ancient ruins at Angkor Borei was destroyed. I was informed by the administrators of the Funan empire museum that a great deal of what was still standing from this time period—including portions of ancient walls and structures—was considered useless by the locals and was bulldozed and razed to make way for more useful modern structures! What a terrible track record! Fortunately, the museum has brought together history and artifacts.

Takeo Province also has a lot of interesting sights, and all of them are great day trips because they are close to Phnom Penh and easy to get to. A day trip can combine some attractions. Spend the evening in Takeo town and see everything if you have some extra time. There is a wonderful little spot to remain neglecting the stream and lake region.
