Temples / Attractions: Preah Vihear & Koh Ker
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.
We’ll also see Koh Ker temple. Koh Ker is one of the most unique and remote temples in Cambodia and it’s around 120km from Siem Reap town. It’s not possible to visit the whole area as parts still haven’t been demined and some parts are hidden deep into the jungle.
Due to the unique shape of the seven tiered pyramid, many historians believe that the Angkor kings had some extraterrestrial help. Their main reason for this belief is the fact that it looks nearly identical to Inca temples built 1000s of kilometres away in South America.
