Angkor impressions – third chapter
Enjoy the next chapter of my impressions, that shows even more that there is life in Angkor beyond Angkor Wat. The less popular temples are also magical. Every day here is a proof, that this place deserves more, than only a 1-2 day visit.
Preah Neak Pean
Once it was on an island of East Mebon, but there’s no trace of water anymore. Harnessed elephants guard the site in the four corners of the pyramid shaped temple, that symbolizes the mythical Mt. Meru.
The number of photos may indicate already, that this is my next favourite place. This hindu temple dedicated to Shiva, built of red sandstone is super charming. The restoration work done here is outstanding. It is impossible to resist to it.
