The province, the name of which can be roughly translated as “fortress of victory”, was an integral part of the Khmer Empire as early as the times of Angkor . Some remaining temples from the 12th century still bear witness to this today. The most important of these facilities is Banteay Chhmar , which is 60 km north of the provincial capital. In the 17th century, the neighboring Siam got control of the region, which later had to be handed over to the French colonial power . At their time, Banteay Meanchey still belonged to the neighboring province of Battambang . In 1988 the province was spun off.
