Ba Phnom District (Khmer: ស្រុកបាភ្នំ sometimes spelled "Ba Phnum") is a district located in Prey Veng Province, in south eastern Cambodia. Ba Phnom is a relatively remote location and has been attractive to ascenti monks (loak dhutang) for centuries. It has also been an occasional center from which millennial movements have radiated throughout Khmer history. Ba Phnom has been a sacred place from very early times. An inscription from 629 AD associates it with Shiva and refers to it as "the holy mountain." Human sacrifices were made here until 1872. Khmer Kings made pilgrimage here.
