Just 1500 meters east of the road that connects Highway 7 to Chlong, about 5K north of the 7

When I was here, it was overgrown with bush and could not see the tower as you have captured here... Definately want to visit it again before it collapses

Allan, I have another pic of it posted in my photos when it was overgrown. I was unsure if it was one of the same as I had accessed it from a different location at the time. Looking closer it is the same prasat. The locals on the east had called it Weil Somdai and the sign and access on the west called it Tropeah Somdai. Looking at US bombing maps from the Vietnam War, it is located in a pretty heavily bombed zone and I imagine that is the reason for its condition.
