PSB University


His Holiness Samdech Preah Abhisiri Sugandha mahasangharajah Dhipati Kitti Udessa Pandita Bour Kry, the great supreme Patriarch of Dhammyutta of Kingdom of Cambodia, was the founder of Preah Sanghareach Bour Kry Buddhist High School located within the Svay Pope Monastery in Phnom-Penh. Students who had completed their secondary studies needed to pursue their academic course to a higher level.
