Preah Palilay

Constructed : Late 12 th /Early 13 th century
Religion : Mahayana Buddhist
Style : Bayon
King : Jayavarman VII ★ 1181 - 1218 ★
Location : Angkor Thom - Behind the Buddha of Tep Pranam.


Comment : Preah Palilay is the small ruins which has the court septentrional. It has consisted of the tower hall and the two-storied gate which is on the east side. The tower hall like the smokestack has done high thin unique shape. There does not remain large-thing of what was to be the pride of the Buddhist monks of Tep Pranam.

One found indeed many sculptures reporting the life of the Buddha or the Buddhist scenes. Some of the bas-reliefs are still visible among the many stones which are piled up in the neighbourhoods of this tower where one wonders whether are the trees which retain it or which make it fall. The place is quiet and shaded and is appropriate perfectly to make a small halt before taking again the visit of Angkor Thom.

As for Prasat Prei Khmeng from southwest angle of west Baray it is in close small village. It probably is the place where perhaps at one time the hall it has the slightly elevated mound. The building has disappeared, the components and the phosphorus moth etc. of the sandstone where Hibun is cut have laid scattered the around.

Constructed : Early 12th century
Religion: Hindu
Style : Angkor Wat
King : Suryavarman II ★ 1113 - 1150 ★
Location : A group of 5 sanctuaries in the Angkor Thom group.


Comment : The compound ruins where the open space before the court is located septentrional. It consists of the plural buildings, but is not to be made under one plan, it seems. You call septentrional of the open space before the court, there is a position where it is easy to visit in plain existence, it seems that is not either the person whom it visits excessively in spite.

Temple T and U state are not good, but as for temple X restoration has ended. The relief of the stylobate section of temple V state is beautiful well. It is the good place known to few people ruins which can enjoy to the whole quiet atmosphere. Septentrional of the ruins there is a pond and a Buddhism temple where the flower of the lotus blooms.

Preah Ko

Religion: Hindu (Shivaism)
Style : Preah Ko
King : Indravarman I ★ 877 - 889 ★
Location : Roluos Group. Near Bakong and Lolei.


Comment : The ring moat of east west 500 meters and north and south 400 meters around that, you say that the court of Indravarman I existed at one time on back of the temple. Those where presently it becomes the object of sight-seeing are only the hall group of the brick making which is the center.

The duplication lap there to be a wall in the hall group, lap as for the wall outside east west 97 meters and north and south 94 meters. Lap as for wall inside east west 58 meters and north and south 56 meters. Each of them does with the laterite. Usually it reaches into six halls where it approaches from east side, the tower gate of the lap wall, pass by the tower gate of the second lap wall and are in the center. The hall group around (the chestnut) of the sandstone is decorated with type is built on the common low stylobate. There are three stairways on east side of the stylobate, in order for respectively, the saintly cow which is the vehicle of God. The stairway is just one on west side. As for six halls front line three, dividing into two groups in rear line, three being arranged in north and south direction, sooner or later east has become the front.

As for one of good point it is decoration of the plaster which is seen in the hall wall surface. As for delicate relief such as pattern and Carla of plant type you see and there is withstanding. As for Carla the lintel of the temple and typical motif of the Khmer construction which is often seen in the gable it is Before the technique which carves in the sandstone is done, the plaster is painted thick in the wall surface of the brick of the building, the technique which cuts the pattern and the like on that surface was general. The plaster as building materials designating the lime as the main raw materials, while it is easy to process, pain is easy. The hall wall surface is typical ones, as a decoration of the plaster which exists, but large portion having exfoliated, just extremely part has left prototype.
