Tormor Rocky Channel was listed as the 15th National Heritage Site in Laos receiving approval via Prime Minister’s Degree 174/PMO at the same time as Wat Phou Champasack. The Tormor Rocky Channel archeological site is located about 11 kilometers southeast from Wat Phou Champasack on the left bank of the Mekong River. The Tormor Rocky House, as is known by the locals, was originally built in the 19th Century with bricks and carved stone during the 7th and 8th Centuries. These were later destroyed with the Gopuya artwork now on display built with layered rocks in the 11th and 12th Centuries
Columns of sandstone rock stand along both sides of a walkway. Although in a ruined state, a large chamber with front and rear doors and windows on two sides can be observed on the site. According to inscriptions, historians have concluded that the channel is a close relation to Wat Phou Champasack.
