Beng Mealea is a mysterious, hidden temple in the Angkor heritage complex, its name means “Lotus Pond”. On the dirt road in front of Beng Mealea, there is a multi-headed snake statue, and the river flower pond next to it has dried up. Beng Mealea's size and design style is similar to that of Angkor Wat. Today, there are only broken pillars, collapsed walls and ruins in the temple, leaving traces of war and earthquake. Surrounded by jungle, it appears to be in a state of even flux. Many well-known movies and TV series such as Tomb Raider have been filmed here.
