Temples / Attractions: Preah Vihear & Beng Mealea
Moreover, Preah Vihear sits on top of a 500m cliff which sits in the Dangrek Mountains which provides a spectacular view of the surrounding area. This may explain the temples position as it offers a great vantage point over an approaching enemy. Preah Vihear temple is one of the earlier temples and it was built in the early 9th century. It was originally a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva, but over the centuries it was gradually converted into a Buddhist temple.
When we get to the temple, we have to change to 4x4 transport to make it up the mountain and explore the temple grounds which cover an area of 380 acres.
On this tour we’ll go to see Beng Mealea temple which is located around 40km from Siem Reap. It was built during the same time as Angkor Wat on the main highway to Kompong Svay. Beng Mealea is a Hindu temple and has been mostly left unrestored. It doesn’t get many visitors due to its location from Siem Reap and it’s a great place to explore without being surrounded by thousands of other tourists.
