Saint Sword Monastery was also built during Jayavarman's reign of Hanyebama VII. According to legend, Yarbama II gave his heir a sacred sword, hence his name. Saint Sword Temple was once the palace of the king. In the 12th century, Saint Sword Temple was built by King Kuoye Bama VII to worship his father. It is said that the city of Angkor was under construction at that time. It became the temporary residence of the king, where he worshipped and studied. Saint Sword Temple is a large-scale temple with a rectangular wall 800 meters long and 700 meters wide. Characteristic: Shimen layers of matching, enchanting fairy relief, reproductive worship utensils, ancient Greek style stone architecture Rongye Bamao VII (it is said that the smiling face of Barong Temple is him), the greatest monarch in Cambodian history, is also a well-known filial son, he built two monuments for his parents all his life, Tabu Mun Temple, dedicated to his mother; Saint Sword Temple, dedicated to his father. Saint Sword Temple is a very sad temple. The collapse caused by the swallowing of ancient trees is only the surface we see, behind which is the bloody wind of religious struggle. Decades after the temple was built, Hinduism regained the upper hand in Cambodia and a nationwide act of Buddhist destruction took place. ** Tips: 1. The Saint Sword Temple is in the Great Circle. It's a little far away. It takes about 40 minutes for the Tuktuk to arrive. 2. Saint Sword Temple is one of the important temples in Angkor Scenic Area. There are many tourists. They try their best to avoid tour groups. They can arrange after seven o'clock in the morning or four o'clock in the afternoon. However, there are many pagodas and corridors in the temple, which are very shady, so some tourists also arrange it to visit in the sunny time of noon. It depends on what you do. When we went there at nine o'clock, not too many people, but by ten o'clock, people began to feel overcrowded and it was difficult to take pictures. 3. Some of the key points of the Saint Sword Temple mentioned on the Internet must not be missed: there are huge Garuda foot reliefs on the outermost wall; two courtyards in the northwest and southwest after passing through the first wall are worth taking time to see, which contain the cross-legged Buddha statues and ascetic monk reliefs; the East Second pagoda gate is relatively well preserved, with numerous Apsara reliefs carved on the wall; The ruins of the dancing platform on the east side of the fence; the pavement on the north side of the dancing platform is well preserved, and the railings of Naga, the serpent god, are on both sides of the road. The north side of the road is the unknown two-story stone column building. The intermittent rain we went to that day seriously affected the tour, so we did not look for these interesting points carefully. 4. The North-South Passage is less crowded and suitable for photography. Reminds the girls, I feel that the white clothes match the style of this temple very much, and they are beautiful.
