KOH KEH TEMPLE BENG MEALEA TEMPLE

 

Morning pick up from hotel for full day excursion

Koh Keh Temple, its site was dominated by Prasat Thom, a 30 meter tall temple mountain raising high above the plain and the surrounding forest. Great views await the visitor at the end of an adventurous climb. Garuda, carved into the stone blocks, still guard the very top, although they are partially covered now.
After the Khmer empire had been established in the Angkor area (Roluos), Jayavarman IV moved the capital in 928 almost 100km northeast to Koh Keh. Here a vast number of temples were built under his reign, until his successor returned to the Angkor area about twenty years later

Set lunch will be served at local restaurant

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

Late afternoon, transfer back to hotel
