Life & Soul
Choeung Ek is the site of a former orchard and mass grave of victims of the Khmer Rouge. It is by a Buddhist stupa. The stupa has acrylic glass sides and is filled with more than 5,000 human skulls. Some of the lower levels are opened during the day so that the skulls can be seen directly. Many have been shattered or smashed in.
