    Beng Mealea 2007 the when did you go didn't give the option.

    Okay these photos are from 2007 so I guess it has changed a bit. When I went there was just me and a Japanese woman. The roads were less than perfect but the experience with my 1 USD unlicensed ...

    A bit of a journey to get there

    Beng Mealea, or the Temple of Doom, is about a 40 minute drive from Siem Reap so probably too far for a tuk tuk but it's well worth it when you get there. Like everywhere we went in Cambodia it was al...

    Magnificent, overgrown ruins made accessible by some well maintained walkways

    I loved Beng Melea and thought it was every bit as impressive as it’s more famous counterpart, Ta Prohm, but without the crowds!! The walkways are well maintained so you are not scrabbling over the ru...

    A ‘Must do’ in our books

    We arranged a driver to take us on an overnight trip to Preah Vihear and, to us, it was definitely worth the time and money. We left Siem Reap early in the morning and stopped at Beng Melea for a few...

    My favourite Temple visit.

    This visit was worth the driving from Siem Reap. Very nice and not so crowded place, few tourists, this place is still like it was found. Very interesting place with some signs not to move away from t...

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
