Reclining Buddha

A sacred Cambodian site

Reclining Buddha is found on Kulen Mountain Kulen (50 kilometers – 30 miles from Siem Reap) and is considered the most sacred mountain in Cambodia. Walk around the back of the Buddha and you will see that people have placed small notes with prayers for their families and friends.

The Buddha is an 8 meter (26 feet) long shrine posed in a reclining position, his face in a state of bliss as he reaches Nirvana. The very interesting thing is that the Buddha is carved directly into the sandstone rock. A roof has been added later to protect the structure from the elements and local people come regularly to worship bringing fresh offerings.

There are many ley lines (natural energy veins of the earth) crossing under sacred places around the world, particularly in Cambodia – and it is believed that these ancients knew something that we have now forgotten.

On Kulen Mountain, you can visit the reclining Buddha, Kbal Spean (River of 1000 Lingas) and swim in the sacred waters.


It is only possible to get up the road before 11 am and down again after midday to avoid vehicles meeting on the narrow road.

The Buddha is one of the focal points during a pilgrimage for Khmer people, so it is important to take off your shoes and any head covering before climbing the stairs to the sanctuary.

Admission Time: 7.30 am – 5.30 pm (It is approximately a 30 – 45-minute walk through Cambodian jungle and access to the trail is not permitted after 3.30 pm)

Food and drink are available at the base of the trail only.

Do not forget to take enough water and bug spray for the trip up.

Entrance Fee: $20.00 (admission into Kulen Mountain)
