Ta Dumbong Kro Aung Statue ( Black man Statue ) Founded in the 11th century by the Khmer Empire, Battambang is the leading rice-producing province of the country.

Battambang remains the hub of Cambodia’s northwest, connecting the region with Phnom Penh and Thailand.

Worth a quick stop if you're passing by. It's right in the middle of a roundabout but is fairly easy to cross over to. Day and night people are leaving gifts etc. at the foot of the statue as the traffic passes by.

It is very big status in city center at around about and it is secret shrine for Cambodia and it relates to the historical of City battambang. It is good time to visit and nice for taking photos on the morning because status face to eaten sites and look to Phnom Penh. It must see when you visit Battambang.

When you enter Battambang from the east you cant fail to miss this giant kneeling figure in the middle of a roundabout. He is Ta Dambong and hes holding a stick called Bat Dambang. This is where the town gets its name, it means disappearing stick. He is nicely floodlit at night.

Kick off your trip to explore a real life that mostly Cambodian people expectantly lived by rice-producing still now. Battambang province, the home or rice bin producing, and the city of people celebrity in art which has a figurative statue name "Ta Dombang Kro-ngoung as a witnessed by standing towards to the east.
A quick visit or paying a respect upon across is the grateful generation.

Locals place offerings at this founder of Battambang. He has neon lights and is certainly odd. No need to stop.

The statue is of particualr importance to the residents of Battambang. There were a notable number offering tribute when I visited, in order to bring down blessings and fortune.

As a tourist, worth stopping by to see it if you are in the city.

Not something I'd go to see specifically but having passed it a number of occasions I did enquire about it and there are an interesting story and legend behind the man and the giant stick depicted in this monument that is worth knowing.
