an hour climbing through old doorways, over ruins and onto vines and roots. If you want to see this gem in the jungle, you’d better hurry before the trees completely destroy it

       Beng Melea is located 60km east of Siem Reap town. The road is in good condition and the trip from Siem Reap took us about 1.5 hours. Beng Mealea is the larger temples of the Khmer empire and set in the middle of the jungle with sprawling trees.
The towers of the temple have been reduced to large mounds of rubble with thick tree roots snaking through the walls.

   Although it's out of the way, true temple buffs won't want to miss Banteay Srei, a beautiful 10th-century Hindu temple complex about 23 miles north of Angkor Wat.

 

The temple consists of low walls surrounding peaked structures of deep red sandstone. Banteay Srei means "Citadel of Women," and it is said that the reliefs on this temple are so delicate that they could only have been carved by the hand of a woman. The well-preserved relief carvings on the central buildings depict scenes from ancient Hindu tales.          

BENG MEALEA TEMPLE

Witness the spectacular merging of nature and civilization at Beng Mealea. The Jungle Temple is an explorer’s delight. Shrouded in vines and with giant tree roots pushing through its walls, it eludes a sense of mystery and adventure. Impressive carvings peek through piles of rock, rubble and vegetation. Located nearly 70 kilometres from Siem Reap, Beng Mealea is quieter than Angkor’s main temple complex and well worth the travelling time.

BANTEAY SREY TEMPLE

Banteay Srey – the Citadel of Women – is renowned for its pink stone and beautifully preserved, intricate carvings. It displays a delicacy and detail not seen in many other temples and the stone carvings are considered to be some of the best in the world. Referred to as a jewel in Khmer art, it is a small but popular temple. SMART TOUR TRAVEL would like to thank you so much for your traveling with us. We wish you all the best and hope to arrange your next Cambodia holiday.
