Angkor Wat, Bayon, Taprhom, Kulen Hill.
Phnom Kulen is considered a holy mountain in Cambodia, of special religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists who come to the mountain in pilgrimage.
It also has a major symbolic importance for Cambodians as the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire, for it was at Phnom Kulen that King Jayavarman II proclaimed independence from Java in 804 CE. Jayavarman II initiated the cult of the king, a Linga cult, in what is dated as 804 CE and declaring his independence from Java of whom the Khmer had been a vassalage state (whether this is actually "Java" or "Lava" (a Lao kingdom) is debated, as well as the legend that he was earlier held as a ransom of the kingdom in Java. See Higham's The Civilization of Angkor for more information about the debate). During the Angkorian era the relief was known as Mahendraparvata (the mountain of Great Indra).

Mr Dara is a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and eager to share with you. He knows the patterns of the "big bus" tours and was able to keep clear of the big groups. We went down side passages to quiet areas that most tourists miss. He is very flexible and willing to change the itinerary at a moment's notice if you want to spend more time in one spot. Seeing the temples with a private guide definitely enriches the experience.
