The site consists of a series of stone carvings in sandstone formations carved in the river bed and banks. It is commonly known as the "Valley of a 1000 Lingas" or "The River of a Thousand Lingas". The motifs for stone carvings are mainly myriads of lingams (phallic symbol of Hindu god Shiva), depicted as neatly arranged bumps that cover the surface of sandstone bed rock, and lingam-yoni designs. Kbal Spean is described as "a spectacularly carved riverbed, set deep in the jungle to the northeast of Angkor". The river over which the bridge head exists is also known as Stung Kbal Spean, a tributary of the Siem Reap River that rises in the Kulen mountains north of Banteay Srei. The river bed cuts through sandstone formations and the many architectural sculptures of Hindu mythology have been carved within the sandstone. We drive down and visit the famous Banteay Srei (Citadel of Women). On the way back stop at Pradark Village, where you will see the villagers making palm sugar, handicraft for selling to tourist.
