East Meipeng Temple on the Angkor Wat~ Built around the 10th century~ Originally the temple on the lake island of Dongmeipeng Reservoir~ Now the reservoir has dried up leaving only the temple ruins on this high platform~ The tower on Mount Xumi has many bullet holes which are said to be the main building materials of volcanic rock So ~ In addition to the top floor and the lower two floors of the high platform, there are stone elephants → carved into a whole rock! It is also the feature of this former reservoir site → because the elephant symbolizes water~ A favorite attraction for individuals ～
A small temple, not a lot of natural people. The walls of the eaves, once inlaid with shackled crystal gems, now only holes, lost the magnificence of the past.
East Mebon (East Mebon, English: East Mebon) is a 10 century temple in Angkor, Cambodia. Dongmeiben Temple is a temple built by Rajendravarman II to worship the ancestors. It was built in 953 AD. It was almost the same time as the imperial crematorium Biren Temple. So it is very similar in form and belongs to Brahmanism. It is also called sumiyama.
A visit to the East Mebon Temple reveals numerous pores in many stones. Perhaps the pores are left over from an age-old period, but the pores are used to place fibers inside, allowing lime to cover the stones in their entirety. From here you can see the wisdom of the ancients in building buildings from natural sources.
Dong Mae Ben Temple is the last stop of the entire Siem Reap trip. I personally feel that after visiting so many temples in the Angkor scenic area, there is always aesthetic fatigue. The elephants of Dongmeiben Temple are very famous. This temple is considered one of the better preserved in Siem Reap. After the perfect trip to Siem Reap, my eldest brother and I came to the capital of Cambodia-Phnom Penh. Started another journey in Cambodia.
