Choeung Ek Museum

Choeung Ek, 15 kilometres from Phnom Penh, is Cambodia’s best known Killing Field. It is one of the places, where the Khmer Rouge regime executed about 17000 people between 1975 and 1979. More than 15,000 people, transported from Tuol Sleng, are believed to have been murdered here, some shot, many simply bludgeoned to death. In the center of the area is a 17 story glass stupa which is containing thousands of human skulls and long bones.
