Kratie, in Khmer: ក្រចេះ, Krâchéh “krɑˈceh”, alternatively spelled Kracheh or Kraches, is a province of Cambodia located in the northeast. It borders Stung Treng to the north, Mondulkiri to the east, Kampong Thom and Kampong Cham to the west, and Tboung Khmum, and the country of Vietnam to the south.
The province’s capital is the town of Kratie located within the Kratie Municipality.
The area now known as Kratie was part of the early first millennium Kingdom of Funan until Funan itself was superseded and absorbed in the 6th century by Chenla. Sampheak Borak, the former Royal Capital during the Chenla Era, is located in Sambo District. In addition, Kratie has Vihear Sasar Muayroy Pagoda built in the 16th century. This pagoda is related to a Khmer legend Krapeur Nen Thun (Venerable Monk Thun, the Crocodile). Kratie has several temples built in the 8th century such as Khvas Pi, Pram, and Koh Kring that has perfect deities, ancient halls, Khmer ancient houses, and French-style buildings. The area near Kratie along the Mekong River was one of the most densely populated regions of the pre-Angkorian era of Cambodia.
Lon Nol was the province’s governor in 1945. During the Vietnam and Cambodian Civil Wars and the subsequent Vietnamese presence against Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, intense fighting took place in Kratie. Operation Menu, the 1969-1970 United States bombing campaign targeting Vietnamese supply routes and bases in Cambodia and Laos, resulted in heavy bombardment of Kratie. Recovering unexploded ordnance and de-mining has been a major initiative since at least the mid-2000s.
On December 30, 1978, Vietnamese forces captured Kratie to fight against Khmer Rouge.
