This is a magical red temple - the classic tour of the Queen's Palace
Angkor Wat is a small circle day trip, a big circle day trip, and the most worthwhile punch in the big circle temple is this Queen's Palace. The Queen's Palace is very different from the Angkor monuments mentioned before. The first is that the color of the building is severe red. The walls and columns in the temple are beautifully embossed, and the Queen's Palace is also the gentlest and most refined in Angkor's monuments. One of the most unique buildings, because of the Queen's Palace, means the castle of a woman. The Queens Palace is the premier attraction in Angkors big circle tour. The car ride takes about an hour. Although the road is far away, it must not be missed. But unfortunately, in order to prevent tourists from touching Shanghai in the past, the main scenic spots have been encircled. Visitors can only enjoy one or two meters away, but it does not affect your appreciation of those sculptures and beautiful reliefs. If you want to shoot, you can avoid the morning time. At this time, there are more tourist groups. It is recommended to choose the sunset time. The tourists are less well-lit.
The Queen's Palace is one of the three great temples in Cambodia. It is known as the Pearl of Angkor's monuments and is dedicated to Shiva, one of the three gods of Brahmanism. Because it is far from Angkor, it was not discovered by Westerners until 1914. Then, the people are turned upside down and they are amazing. Unlike most of the blue sandstones used in Angkor's monuments, the Queen's Palace is built with Khmer-specific red clay. It is colorful and charming. Perhaps it was the Angkor site that saw too many green ash the day before, and the moment it came to the Queen's Palace. It is inevitable that it will shine. The Queen's Palace is awe-inspiring. Most of the intricate carvings are based on the story of the famous Indian epic Ramayana. There is no similarity in each sculpture, so the camera can't stop. If you have time, you can ask a guide to explain the various stories on the threshold.
Traffic: About 25 kilometers away from Angkor City, the tour is generally suitable for cars. If you take a sudden car, it will be uncomfortable, and the road conditions in the outer ring are not good, and it is quite bumpy along the way. Of course, if you have good physical fitness, you can rent a bicycle at the Queen's Palace for a rent of 1~2 USD/day.
Tickets: included in the Angkor three-day ticket, seven-day ticket.
Note: The best shooting time for the Queen's Palace is from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm and from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. But the best time of the morning is always packed with tour groups, and you want to take pictures in advance. It should be avoided at sunny noon, because the red sandstone building of the Queen's Palace is unobstructed and very hot.
The Queen's Palace was built in 967 AD in the Rajendravarman dynasty, and in the 1002 dynasty of Jayavarman V, a small temple like this has been tossed for 40 years. For a long time, the level of sophistication can be imagined.
The Queen's Palace is the temple dedicated to the Shiva by the king. All the stones are red sandstone selected from the branches of Litchi, so the color is more vivid. Moreover, this stone is not as potent as the volcanic rock used by Angkor, and it is very soft and very suitable for carving.
Because the Queens Palace is too beautiful, many scholars suspect that this piece of art is from a womans hand. They dont know that the mans demon is more feminine than a woman. I think the Thai student next door will definitely Hands in favor.
The carvings in every part of the Queen's Palace are so meticulous, people can't walk. This kind of beauty, like the beautiful sister paper, can directly hit the human soul and make people feel electric shock.
Hindu teaching a total of three great gods, Brahma is a very creative, very casual, very tempting god, responsible for creation; Vishnu is the most stable and loving one, responsible for protection; Shiva is the most powerful The temper is the most violent, responsible for destruction and regeneration.
In the Queen's Palace, all the carvings are basically carried out around these three gods.
