Khleang pagoda- Soc Trang province

Built in 1533, it was originally made of wood with a roof thatched with palm leaves. The pagoda was later reconstructed with brick, and the roof was covered with tiles.

The pagoda consists of a central chamber and a range of wooden still-houses, used as places for holding traditional ceremonies and for housing the pagoda's monks.

Additionally, there is a tower containing ashes of the dead, a cremation chamber, a guesthouse, and the Pothi School for teaching the Khmer language.

The Khleang Pagoda also houses writings from ancient books, which tell about the origins of Soc Trang and the pagoda.

Traveling to Soc Trang province, this ancient pagoda cannot be ignored by visitors in Vietnam travel.
