Once upon a time at the Preah Rumkel area there was a pagoda named ‘Wat Dam-rei Soa’ or ‘white elephant pagoda.’ This pagoda exists even today. People and monks there had very peaceful and harmonious lives. Then a giant came quietly to the pagoda where he killed and ate the chief monk of the Dam-rei Sor pagoda. But no one knew about this because the giant transformed himself into the chief monk. Then every day they lost a Samine monk (young monk). The people and monks were mystified by all this.
