Pyramid temple -remote temple


Koh Ker temple is about 100km from Siem Reap town. We drive there by private car about 1 hour and half. Koh Ker temple was situated in the first capital city of Cambodia. It was built by King Jayavaraman IV (AD 928-942) and has 7 steps like pyramid. Each step 5 meters high.
Beng Mealea temple the jungle temple which was built by SuryavarmanII: the same king that built Angkor Wat. The style of the temple resembles that of Angkor Wat. This holy place is dedicated to Hinduism and Buddism, with carvings showing legends of Vishnu, Shiva and the Buddha. It has been mostly left the way it was found by explorers. The temple is overgrown by trees and tree roots, which makes you feel like Indiana Jones when you walk through the temple.
