Preah Monivong National Park is a national park in southern Cambodia's Kampot Province that was established in 1993 and covers 1,423.17 km2, Most of the park is about 1,000 meters above sea level and the highest peak is Phnom Bokor at 1,081 meters, also referred to as Bokor Mountain. Preah Monivong National Park is well known for the abandoned Bokor Hill Station, a remote settlement build by the French colonialists in 1921. They also built a Catholic church nearby in 1928, a very rare sight in Cambodia. The park is named after King Sisowath Monivong who used to visit the area and eventually died here in 1941. Monivong ordered the construction of a Buddhist temple in the area in 1924.
