Cambodia Tour Guide

A travel guide to Cambodia including detailed accommodation, restaurant and attraction information. Cambodia, officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a country located in the southern portion of the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. 



Discover the mysteries of Angkor, the capital city of the Khmer Empire and be awestruck by the grandeur of the temples of the Angkor region.

 Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is located near the town of Siam Reap. Many people are amazed at the size of Angkor Wat. The site covers about 500 acres, which is similar in size as 380 football fields! 


  








Bayon
The Bayon is a well-known and richly decorated Khmer temple at Angkor in Cambodia. Built in the late 12th century or early 13th century, the Bayon stands at the center of Jayavarman’s capital, Angkor Thom. The Bayon’s most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and massive stone faces on the many towers. The temple is known also for two impressive sets of bas-reliefs, which present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and mundane scenes.






Ta Prohm
The temple is held in a stranglehold of trees. Stone and wood press-stud each other in grim opposition; yet all is noiseless and stagnant, without any visible movement to indicate their struggle as if they were combatants suddenly alarmed, struck still in the middle of a fight, the rounds in this fight were not measured by minutes, but by eras.















Banteay Kdei 
It is in the Bayon architectural style, similar in plan to Ta Prohm and Preah Khan, but less complex and smaller. Its structures are contained within two successive enclosure walls, and consist of two concentric galleries from which emerge towers, preceded to the east by a cloister.





Ta Keo
A pyramid of five levels reaching a total height of 40m - the first two forms the base of two enclosing courtyards, one surrounded by a simple wall and the other by a gallery, while the last three, through proportional reduction are a massive artificial plinth for the quincunx of sanctuaries. Takeo was also the first temple which was built with the biggest blocks of sandstone in Angkor time.




Neak Pean
A small island temple located in the middle of the last baray (the Preah Khan Baray or Jayatataka) to be constructed by a Khmer king in the Angkor area. The central temple sits at the axis of a cross or lotus pattern of eight pools. 









East Mebon
The inner enclosure that is about 75 meters wide contains the second platform, that also has a guarding elephant on each of its corners. In the corners of the inner enclosure are five laterite structures called libraries. At the entrance gates to the inner enclosure stand eight sanctuaries, in pairs of two. Each contained a linga in a different form. Its colonettes are sculpted in great detail.












Ta Som
The layout of the temple is an extremely simplified version of Banteay Kdei or Ta Prohm. The outer laterite wall, now mostly vanished, measured 240 x 200 meters, within which sat a second enclosure surrounded by a moat. The inner enclosure is a rectangle with four corner towers and four gateways at each of the cardinal directions, with a central free-standing tower in the middle. Apart from two 'libraries' of varying size there are no ancillary buildings.















Pre Rup
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.










Phnom Bakheng 
A Hindu and Buddhist temple in the form of a temple mountain. The golden hues of the setting sun on this vista are a memorable sight.
