BENG MEALEA EXCURSION

 

Morning pick up from hotel for full day excursion

Beng Mealea temple, it was built by Jayarvaman VII with the style of Angkor Wat. Its scale is huge, being well over one square Kilometre within its moat.  Approached by a four causeways, Beng Mealea appears to be a huge pile of rubble partially hidden in the trees. Once you get closer the high walls, the ancient Khmer Architecture reveals itself. Cloaked in vegetation and with few concessions to tourism, this temple looks like it would have done when the early French explorers found it

Set lunch will be served at local restaurant

Banteay Srei Temple and Banteay Samre Temple, one of the most complete complexes at Angkor due to the "anastylosis" restoration method being used. The name Samre refers to an ethnic group of mountain people that inhabited the region at the base of Phnom Kulen and were probably related to the Khmers. No inscriptions have been found at this temple, but the style of most of the architecture is of the classic art of the middle period, similar to Angkor Wat. The proportions of Banteay Samre are splendid. A unique feature is an interior moat with laterite paving, which when filled with water must have given an ethereal atmosphere to the temple

Late afternoon, transfer back to hotel
