Koh Ker Temple
Journey to Koh Ker, the former 10th century capital of the Angkorian Empire. Koh Ker was abandoned in the forest for too many years due to the Civil wars. After a drive for about two hours through beautiful scenic rural Cambodia, we arrived at Koh Ker ruins. We begin our visit at Prasat Thom creeping through the main gate way, franked by atmospheric sanctuaries. Walk along a serpent lined causeway to Prasat Krahorm “red brick temple” near there are Libraries and Reservoirs. Finally we arrive at Prasat Thom “centerpiece” Prasat Thom is large seven level pyramids constructed of sandstones, 45 meters height. If we climb to the upper terrace we will see panoramic jungle views. Visit other outlying temples. Archaeologists believe there may be more than 100 temple ruins in the area waiting to be discovered. On the way back we stop to visit O-thma Dab ”the place where the ancient Khmer people took stones to build Angkor Wat.

Beng Mealea
Visit the most interesting temple outside the Angkor area, King Suryavarman II’s the 11th century Beng Mealea temple – a prototype for the more famous Angkor Wat. Beng Mealea Temple stands almost forgotten in the jungle and getting to the site is quite an adventure in itself. It was isolated during Cambodia’s civil war. It is the largest temple outside the main Angkor complex and in places it is remarkably intact, but in other places it is utterly destroyed; tree roots envelop many of the temple walls and doorways. The atmosphere here is eerie but a welcome contrast to the more visited temples closer to Angkor Wat. Beng Mealea shares many characteristics with Angkor Wat, but on a smaller scale. It has three encircling galleries, the same four gates and entrances, and a pair of interior libraries. It differs from Angkor Wat in having only one central tower instead of the famous five towers of Angkor Wat
