Places of Interest - Cambodia

Spean Thma - Siem Reap Province

‘Spean Thma’ literally translates to ‘Stone Bridge’. Remnants of an ancient bridge over the Siem Reap River. Reconstructed several times over the centuries. As it currently stands the bridge is of post-Angkorian construction, employing carved stone from earlier temples.

Pub Street - Siem Reap Province

In Siem Reap, after returning from the temple tours in the evening, many tourists are taken to the Pub Street to take advantage of the happy hour deals or a good meal.  The street is so named because it is lined end to end on both sides by pubs, restaurants and shops.

Ta Keo - Siem Reap Province

Towering but plainly decorated temple-mountain dedicated to Shiva. Known in its time as ‘the mountain with golden peaks.’ The first to be constructed wholly of sandstone, this temple employing huge sandstone blocks.

Ta Nei temple - Siem Reap Province

Small (55m x 47m), semi-ruined, untouristed jungle temple reminiscent of Ta Som, displaying classic Jayavarman VII period artistry. Some of the apsara and lintel carvings are in pretty good condition.

Ta Prohm Kel - Siem Reap Province

A single small sandstone tower located opposite Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm Kel is the ruin of the temple or ‘chapel’ of one of the 102 hospitals built by Jayavarman VII throughout the kingdom. Of very similar design and state of ruin to the Chapel of the Hospital near Ta Keo.

Ta Som - Siem Reap Province

Small, classic Bayon-style monastic complex consisting of a relatively flat enclosure, face tower gopuras and cruciform interior sanctuaries much like a miniature version of Ta Prohm. Many of the carvings are in good condition and display particularly fine execution for late 12th century works.

Tep Pranam - Siem Reap Province

A long walkway with a Buddha figure at the far end. Tep Pranam was originally a Buddhist shrine in the 9th century under Yasovarman I, the king that moved the capital to Angkor. It was expanded over the years with 12th century balustrades, 13th century lions and significant post-Angkorian modifications and additions.

Terrace of the Leper King - Siem Reap Province

A double terrace wall at the north end of the Terrace of Elephants with deeply carved nagas, demons and other mythological beings. The inner wall is an earlier version of the outer wall that was covered at the time the outer wall was added. The inner wall was excavated by French archaeologists in the late 1990s.

Thma Bay Kaek temple - Siem Reap Province

The spare remains of a brick prasat, now disappeared, leaving only a doorframe, lintel and a bit of the terrace. A sacred relic of five gold leaves, one bearing the images of Nandi (Shiva’s bull), was discovered at this site. Combine with visit to Prasat Bei/Baksei Chamkrong.

Thommanon - Siem Reap Province

Small, attractive temple in very good condition, built at the same time as Angkor Wat. The Angkor Wat style is most easily seen in the style of the towers and carved devatas. Thommanon seems to stand in conjunction with Chau Say Tevoda across the street, but was built decades earlier.
