Kh'leang pagoda is one of the oldest Khmer pagodas in
Ma Toc (or Bat) pagoda, a Khmer pagoda, about 2km from downtown Soc
Trang, is the huge nest for thousands of big bats. It is believed that
the pagoda was built during the 16th century, and it has been renovated
several times since. The pagoda is famous for its beautiful
architecture, especially its numberless trees that houses thousands of
bats. Interestingly enough, the presence of the bats has not affected
the plants growing in and around the pagoda.
An ancient Buddha statue and a number of Buddhist books written on sugar
palm leaves can be admired there.
