Beng Mealea Tours

star-4
1 Review
Beng Mealea
Beng Mealea is located 40 kilometers east of the main Angkor Wat complex. The temple was mainly constructed from sandstone, with its architectural style identical to that of Angkor Wat. Because of this, it is thought that Beng Mealea was built in the 12th century under the reign of Suryavarman II. 

The temple grounds are surrounded by a gigantic moat and was once entirely consumed by jungle. This atmospheric temple is oriented toward the east, with entranceways from the other three cardinal directions also. If entering from the south, visitors will find themselves amid piles of chiselled sandstone blocks, sweeping vines, and mysterious dark chambers.

The layout of the temple consists of three enclosed galleries situated around a central tower, which has now completely collapsed. There’s a well-preserved library in the northeastern quadrant, plus extensive carvings of scenes from Hindu mythology and long balustrades formed by bodies of the seven-headed Naga serpent.

Practical Info

Beng Mealea is situated approximately 70 kilometers from Siem Reap. The shortest route to the temple is found by heading north at the town of Dam Dek, located around 40 kilometers from Siem Reap, traveling in the direction of Phnom Penh. Arranging a vehicle and driver from Siem Reap is recommended.
Address: Beng Mealea, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia
