Description : Oudong (Khmer: ឧដុង្គ) (also romanized as Udong or Odong) is an ancient town of the post-Angkorian period (1618-1863 C.E) situated in present-day Phsar Daek Commune, Ponhea Lueu District, Kandal Province, Cambodia. Located at the foothill of the mountain Phnom Oudong, also known as Phnom Preah Reach Troap (Khmer: ភ្នំព្រះរាជ្យទ្រព្យ), about 35 km northwest of the modern capital Phnom Penh via National Road No. 5, Oudong was royal residence and Cambodia's capital for more than 250 years until 1866. A monumental royal necropolis of sovereigns of several centuries is scattered on top the prominent bisected mountain, which runs from the southeast to the northeast.
