Entered Preah Ang Check and Preah Ang Chorm shrine and attempted to remove both Buddha statues, these were growing heavier by the second until they’re reached such weight that Khmer Rogue cadres were unable to move them.

The presence of thousands of Cambodian flying Foxes that circled over Royal independence Gardens where the shrine is located gave of shrine’s edges and distinct roof draws eyes of passers-by after dark and since it was the beginning of Pchum Ben festival, Preah Ang Chek and Preah Ang Chorm shrine was enveloped in a haze of smoke from hundreds of burning incense sticks which is part of Khmer ritual surrounding the festival of the dead. There was no other temples or shrine anywhere in Cambodia that would leave profound impressions.
