Discovered in the jungle, the gigantic ruins of Beng Mealea offer fabulous scenery reminiscent of an Indiana Jones movie. Built in the early 12th century, possibly as a prototype to Angkor Wat, this enormous temple complex is surrounded by a huge moat measuring 1.2 by 0.9 km (0.75 by 0.56 mi). Feel the power of nature as you admire intricate stone carvings and finely chiseled blocks of stone covered by lush vegetation. Roots and crowns of ancient trees protruding from even older stone structures provide shade. Some tours include lunch served under a tent next to the ruins, but regardless of how you visit the complex, you should stick to the boardwalks and beware of snakes.

人の居ない朝早くに行くことをおすすめします。鳥達は囀り静かで美しい場所であり、カンボジアの歴史に触れることが出来ます。 入場料を払う建物の敷地内にはモダンな綺麗なカフェがあるのでおトイレはそこを使うと便利です。カフェでwifi も使うことが出来ました。 more »It is recommended to go early in the morning when there are no people. The birds are quiet and beautiful places, and you can get in touch with Cambodian history. There is a modern and beautiful cafes on the premises of the building where you pay the entrance fee, so it is convenient to use the toilet there. I was able to use wifi in the cafes.
