Places of Interest - Cambodia

Night Market - Siem Reap Province

Like the one in Phnom Penh, the Angkor Night Market is also designed to give visitors a secure and enjoyable shopping and dining experience in a vibrant, contemporary Khmer environment. Both these night markets offer a wide variety of stalls offering a diverse range of goods and services.  A ‘must visit’ when in the vicinity.

Kravan Temple - Siem Reap Province

Built by King Harshavarman I in the early 10th century and dedicated to Hindusim.

Location: East of Angkor Wat and south of Banteay kdei

Date: The first half of the tenth century (921)

Terrace of the Elephants - Siem Reap Province

The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom. The terrace was used by king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. It was attached to the palace of Phimeanakas. Most of the original structure was made of organic material and has long since disappeared and most of what remains are the foundation platforms of the complex. The terrace is named for the carvings of elephants on its eastern side.

Srah Srang ‘the royal bath’ - Siem Reap Province

It was perhaps a chapel to Kama, God of Love. The spot would suit the temper of the strange power, terribly strong and yet terribly tender, and of that passion which carries away kingdoms, empires and whole worlds. Love could occupy this quiet nest embedded in water, which gave the impression that love had come one day and had left there, when he went away, a part of his spirit.

Boeng Melea Temple - Siem Reap Province

The remains of Boeng Mealea, which are still partly buried under vegetation, consist of perfectly squared-off sandstone building blocks. The outstanding decoration dates from the fist half of the 12th century. 

East Mebon Temple - Siem Reap Province

East Mebon is a large temple-mountain-like ruin, rising three levels and crowned by five towers. Jayavarman IV, a usurper to the throne, moved the capital from Angkor to Koh Ker in 928AD. Sixteen years later Rajendravarman II returned the capital to Angkor and shortly thereafter constructed East Mebon on an island in the middle of the now dry Eastern Baray.

Pre Roup Temple - Siem Reap Province

Architecturally and artistically superior temple-mountain. Beautifully carved false doors on upper level, as well as an excellent view of the surrounding countryside. Richly detailed,  Well-preserved carvings.

River of One-Thousand Lingas - Siem Reap Province

It is located at the foot of the mountain. Along the river of Siem Reap, there are a lot of figures of Yoni and Linga spreading out at its bottom.

Kbal Spean - Siem Reap Province

This holy place must have been favored during the great Angkorean epoch when its waters, after having washed gods and lingas, continued on to the wondrous royal city with its growing monumental temples.

Ak Yum - Siem Reap Province

The historically important ruins of a small brick and sandstone temple in very poor condition. The earliest elements date from the pre-Angkorian 8th century, Inscriptions indicate that a temple dedicated to the Hindu ‘god of the depths’ was previously located on the same spot.
