You will see a moat around the monastery, a bridge through which stone statues are guarded. Many heads are not preserved and they are regularly changed to new ones. In addition, at the location of the monastery everywhere there are lingams. Lingam is the reproductive organ of Shiva, as a symbol of fertility.
Pre Rup & Neak Pen
Temple Pre Rup X century. The name of the temple means "turning bodies", because earlier here were funeral rites on the terraces.
If you look closely, you can see that the towers and tiers have different colors. The creators of the temple located in the corners of the terrace figures of lions and elephants.
Neak Pen is the most unusual temple, it stands on an island in the center of the lake with dirty, muddy water, and once it was believed that the water of this sacred place is able to heal.
So that some tourists do not have the temptation to drink green water for medicinal purposes, the temple staff fenced the pond.
Krol Co, Ta Som & East Mebon
Krol Co. Near Neak Pine, to the left of the road is a small temple of Krol Ko, dedicated to the Buddha. Very little visited by tourists, surrounded by a dense wall of greenery, it is able to become necessary for recreation a short pause before a visit to Ta Som.
Ta Som - One of the hallmarks of this cult place is the presence of a large number of vegetation among the ruins.
East Mebon is a temple of the 10th century. It is located in the center of the dried up artificial pool "East bar". He was on a small island in the middle of a huge reservoir, which, unfortunately, became shallow. But despite this, the temple leaves a terrific impression.
Cambodia Avatar. Second day - Small Circle Angkor
Angkor Wat temple complex "Small Circle" includes the following attractions: temples of Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prom, Phnom Bakheng, Baphua, Ta Keo, Terrace leper King, terrace elephants.

The central temple of Bayon and its fifty-four huge towers, each decorated with the four faces of the Buddha. According to one version in the image of the Buddha was presented a portrait of the king himself. This temple was the last large religious building built in Angkor.
