Krol Romeas / Krol Damrei

Constructed : N/A
Religion : N/A
Style : N/A
King : Jayavarman VII ★ 1181 - 1218 ★
Location : Coming out of the north gate of Angkor Thom, when it goes a little. Approximately 500 m before arriving at the Western entry of Preah Khan, at the end of a small road with 50 meters of the road.


Comments : This curious monument ignored by all would however gain with being examined more closely and would learn to us a little more on the life and the Khmer practices. Discovered only in 1924, it was initially described like a park for elephants, and, for this reason, interests us much. It is a kind of circus elliptic, of approximately 70m in its greater dimension, which could have been used well as model to the contemporary architect who drew the parks for elephants used today at Phnom Bakheng and in the Cultural Village, but unfortunately out of the public's eyes.

We can imagine a central court in which the elephants were showered and washed, more especially as there is a discharging trough for waste water. Every two meters, on the first enclosure, are the site of what was to be used to attach the elephants. It is easy to imagine the residences of the mahouts in a circular building located above the unit.

Style : Bayon
King : Jayavarman VII ★ 1181 - 1218 ★
Location : On the large circuit, at the end of a small road on the left while going from Neak Pean to Ta Som.



Comment :
In a very calm place and very little visited this temple whose name means the cattle shed or the park to cow, was to be the spiritual reference mark of the neighbouring stockbreeders. Some sculptures are in good condition, and it is interesting to also look at the stones on the ground. One stops here, the time of a photograph and of a small meditation and the visit continues.

Koh Ker Capital

Koh Ker Capital

Constructed : 10th century
Religion: Hindu (dedicated to Shiva)
Style : Koh Ker
King : Jayavarman IV ★ 928 - 941 ★
Location : 130 km in North East of Siem Reap, are approximately two hours and half of road.


Comments : In 928 years, for an unknown reason, the King Jayavarman IV moved the Khmer capital from Angkor towards Kohker. But when capital is placed at Koh Ker is short, Jayavarman IV sinks in 941, passing the reign where the child Harshavarman II is short, age of Rajendravarman II (944 years) capital means again to return to Angkor.

During twenty years, this site was the object of a very great number of constructions and Prasat Thom which one usually visits is only one very small part of immense Kohker. Prasat Thom is appeared as very large and majestic pyramid of seven levels whose only last stage is damaged. The staircases are extremely abrupt and required the addition of wooden staircases to be practicable and the immense sight on the surrounding countryside that one has at the top of this pyramid is a reward for those which will have climbed! The entrance fee is 10 $ per person.
