3 reviews of East Mebon Temple

Worth a visit

Greetings, travelers. The East Mebon was built by Rajendravarman II in the tenth century. He built several temples in the same style as Preah Rup, but this temple has something unique: it sits in the East Baray. In its glory days this Baray (an artificial lake or reservoir) was full of water. It was about 7km x 2km, but nowadays there's no water in it. It's a large area with little vegetation and then the temple, which still stands on some water. As you can imagine, it can only be accessed by boats.

It is just south of the small temple of Ta Som and Neak Pean, and just north of Preah Rup and Srah Sang (Lake of Dawn).
