Bakken Temple | Angkor appreciates the commanding heights of the sunset
Bakken Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva in the Angkor monuments of Cambodia. It was a temple built on the Bakken Mountain after the King Angkor Dynasty in the 9th century. Bakken Mountain is a hill 1.5 km northwest of Angkor Wat. It is about 70 meters high and is the only commanding height in the vicinity. On the west side of the mountain is the open West Pond, and in the southeast jungle is Angkor Wat. From the top of Bakken, you can admire the Angkor Wat. Outside the Bakken Temple, there is a rectangular dam with a length of 650 meters and a width of 436 meters. It may be that the waterproof project of the old building of Rolos is used in the new building. Surrounded by gullies, the Bakken Mountain symbolizes the mysterious sea of Mount Meru, which surrounds the heart of the world in Hindu mythology. The Bakken Temple is built on a flat mountaintop.
How can I miss the sunset of Bakken Mountain in Angkor Wat
Bakken Mountain is not far from the Little Angkor Temple, come here to see the sunset is a must-have for the trip to Angkor Wat, because Bakken is The only commanding height in the vicinity, from the top of Bakken, you can admire the large scenery of Angkor Wat. Of course, more and more tourists are gathering here, so there are time limits and control measures, 5 pm
Bakken Mountain is also known as the Three Sacred Mountains of Angkor along with Lichee Mountain and Boke Mountain. The Bakken Temple on the mountain is a temple built by Jess in the center of the capital. Using the natural hills about 60 meters high, I built a steep pilgrimage road. After a little visit to the pilgrimage site, I can see the platform-like plaza, while the Bakken Temple is above the square.
It is worth noting that the estimate on the hillside is demanding clothing. The clothes can't be strapless, the skirts have to go over the knees, because the skirts worn by the little friends are not blocked, the wits are ice sleeves. On the knee, the management thought that it was acceptable to let us go.
More importantly, if you want to see the sunset on the Bakken Mountain, you must climb to the top. If you don't give it to the top at 17:30 every day, the administrator will pull the rope and not enter. In addition, even if you come up before 17:30, you don't necessarily have to climb to the top, because only 300 places can watch the sunrise on the top of Bakken every day. After the summit, the management will issue the listing and the listing will be pulled up. rope. Therefore, if you want to watch the sunset on the Bakken Mountain, you will have to go up the mountain at 16:00.
Unfortunately, we climbed to the top and waited for a long time to wait for the sunset, but waited for a sudden heavy rain. This is a regrettable point of the trip to Siem Reap. We could not see the sunset on the Bakken Mountain.
After the baptism of the years, the Bakken Temple has disappeared from the past, but it can be traced back to the bustling, but the platform at the top of the temple can be seen from the heights of Angkor Wat. Visitors from all over the world will come to the mountains to enjoy the sunset of Angkor and recall this lost civilization. The number of people on the top is limited, so the queue is busy, but the mountains are casual.... After watching the sunset, it is beautiful, the sunset of Bakken Mountain, magnificent mystery, sorrow and long distance, it is a dream! True or false
