The oldest temple in Siem Reap contains many Khmer murals and sculptures. The local temple, looking at some old, because it is the oldest temple in the city. The 19th century temple is famous for its beautiful murals. Now you can see the ruins of the old temple. There are well-preserved murals at the end of the 19th century in the temple, which depict the situation in the Roman biography. Construction of new buildings is also under way in the temple. The gate is made of cement. It's a bit old and looks very vicious. There is a Buddhist temple in the entrance. There is no wall. There is only a circle of pillars around it. There is a corridor outside. There is a top on it. There is a group of Buddhist statues inside. Behind is the main Buddhist temple, the top of the temple is a triple eaves warping angle, covered with red tiles, but the passage of time has faded some black, the side of the roof has beautiful decoration, is two gods overlapped with hand-held artifacts, the background is carved, the overall light yellow can not see whether wood or cement. Surrounded by a circle of corridors, corridors with stone fences, there are a circle of small gods and animals, there are four white cement doors, the door is arched with carved patterns and some gods and animals as decoration, the door has two white elephants and a pair of colored Hercules holding heavy swords guarding the door, the other three doors are gods and animals, one is like a lion, and another is like China's Kirin but with elephants. Long nose. After years of wind and rain erosion, the top of the white cement building has become a little black and generally a little discolored. The other three doors are different. The main temple is very big and powerful, and it has a long history at first sight. The stone pillars in the inner ring are white, and there are lintels on every door inside. The carvings on them are exquisite, and there are also on the windows. Each of them tells a different story and shows different scenes. This decoration is made of white cement, because there are corridors so there is no wind and rain, but a thick layer of soil, or a layer of black. The door of the main temple was not opened and the legendary murals could not be seen. There is no flagpole in the temple. The flag is hanging with a high bamboo pole. The flag has many layers of slender strips. There are also two ribbons like kites. This may be the special flag for the temple. The pagodas of this temple are not gathered in one place. They are built around the main temple. There is no difference in form from the spiritual pagodas of other temples. Behind it is a temple under construction. The roof cabinet is erected to show its structure. Next to it is a beautiful house with a Western style, a prominent round eaves, a terrace below which you can drink coffee and view, but also a traditional roof, which is very unique. And the wooden house, it's much worse. There are also unfinished temples and unpainted Buddhist pavilions. Finally, there is a smaller Buddhist temple which is relatively simple. When I left the temple on the other side, I saw a large red seven-headed snake-shaped sculpture in the courtyard. In fact, there is a Galuda carved on the front, which is made of cement and painted with red paint. The overall carving is complex and exquisite. Next to it was a very strange tree with many branches like antlers. There are also many flowers and plants in the courtyard which bring some vitality to the old temple. is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
