Choeung Ek Genocidal Center
Between 1975 to 1979, the Pol Pot-led ( Khmer Rouge regime ) took over Cambodia, with an estimated more than two million people killed or dying from starvation and exhaustion. Almost 9,000 bodies were discovered at the mass graves of Choeung Ek, more commonly known as the Killing Fields. Now serving as a memorial, the site features a Buddhist stupa filled with human skulls retrieved from the fields. Visitors can walk around the exhumed graves and learn more through a headset-guided walking tour.
