Siem Reap – Magis Temple complex that surrounds the small town of Siem Reap is now no longer hidden. Now, anyone know anybody who has ever climbed the towers of Angkor Wat. A de facto, the main temple of Angkor Wat to Cambodia. Spiers visible in the Cambodian flag and the label of national beer, Angkor Beer. Here are three temples to play I suggest you visit.
Siem Reap – Bayon
Siem Reap Bayon Temple is known as the Front (Temple of Faces). When you visit, it would be easy to find out the reason behind the name – while climbing a steep stone steps toward the holy temple, hundreds of faces will look in your direction. Although they seem to smile, I felt a little dangerous air, as if the makers are waiting for the stone statues to walk back from the woods. Although many temples were destroyed, it is still easy to imagine the incredible views of the Siem Reap Bayon complex when it was first built – the house of the earth is really worthy of the gods.
Siem Reap – Ta Prohm
If you ever watched Tomb Raider, some movie scenes that take place in the temple of Siem Reap Ta Prohm, do not need special effects to give the impression of eerie and surreal. Temple complex in a state of near-collapse. For centuries the tree rooted at the temple walls. The preservation of the temple let the trees because, so it is rooted, strengthen the construction of the temple tree. If omitted, the remaining temple will collapse. Ta Prohm has a magical effect similar to the Bayon, it’s like building a temple or anyone who lives there was out for a walk, and for exploring the spaces of the hidden temple is a violation. Find a quiet corner, relax and feel the mystical Siem Reap Ta Prohm temple.
Siem Reap – Banteay Srei
During the first ten minutes of Siem Reap Banteay Srei in, you will continue to stare amazed at the intricate carving every inch a rock, wondering if it’s actually made of wood. Even with today’s technology, almost unbelievable that the intricate patterns and details of the sculpture can be made in stone. This temple, like no other, made of red sandstone carved, making them easier and give reddish gold hue on the complex. Most of the entrance and tower of the temple are still preserved and intact condition (be careful of your head because the door is quite short!), But some of the sculptures on the side of the ladder is actually a replica. Original statue is stolen or has been stored in the museum. If there is an art contest, Siem Reap Banteay Srei would win easily because of its originality and attention to detail.
