There is an ancient Khmer temple located on top of the hill. The temple was built in the 11th century of laterite and bricks with carved sandstone lintels by the Khmer Empire king Suryavarman I, who practiced Brahmanism. It was dedicated to the Hindu divinities Shiva and Vishnu. The original name of the temple was Sri Suryaparvata, "The mountain of Surya".

I can't remember how many steps there are to get to the top but it's lots. However it's well worth the effort as not only are the views spectacular, but the ancient ruins at the top are fascinating.

The temple is very nice. Phnom Chiso is located at Takoe Province. It takes time 2 hours by car from Phnom Penh city to reach there, but it's amazing. The view on the top is beautiful. Highly recommend this place to tourists
