    Pre Rup

    Pre Rup is a Hindu temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962.
    The temple's name is a comparatively modern one meaning "turn the body". This reflects the common belief among Cambodians that funerals were conducted at the temple, with the ashes of the body being ritually rotated in different directions as the service progressed.


    Banteay Srei

    Banteay Srei is one of the most elaborate temples at Angkor, Cambodia. Dedicated to Hindu god Shiva, this 10th-century Cambodian temple is famous for its beautiful pinkish sandstone and intricate three-dimensional wall carvings.


    East Mebon

    East Mebon is a mountain temple which was built in the middle of the 10th century. It was built by King Rajendravarman II and dedicated to Shiva.
    Mebon is a pyramid of terraces with stunning sculptures and statues, including the 2m high elephants which sit on each corner.


    Ta Som

    Ta Som is a captivating and charming temple. It was built in the Bayon style and has been well restored. Like Ta Prohm, there is a tree growing through part of the structure which provides excellent photo opportunities.


    Preah Khan

    The temple of Preah Khan is one of the largest complexes at Angkor.
    Preah Khan translates to the Royal Sword or the Holy Sword and is a 12th century Buddhist temple. The temple was built by King Jayavarman VII to honour his father and was built on site of the victory over the invading Cham armies in 1191 AD.
