Luolai Temple is small and damaged seriously. The red bricks that collapsed are piled up there. Now under repair, there are still some exquisite carvings across the housekeeper. There is a primary school near the temple. They seem to need it very much if they have the opportunity to donate some materials.
Lolai Monastery. It's part of the Rollos site group. The Rollos Group is divided into three relics, which are Bakong Temple, Lolai Temple and Preah Ko Temple, also known as Shenniu Temple. Located about 12 kilometers southeast of Siem Reap City, the Rollos Site Group was built during the Angkor Dynasty in the 9th century A.D. and is considered to be the beginning of Angkor architectural art. Their architectural style gave birth to the important foundation of Angkor ancient civilization. Luolai Temple is a red brick building and the last major temple before the capital was moved to Angkor. It was originally designed to be built on an artificial island in the center of the reservoir. It is an architectural space in Angkor's architecture for dialogue with "water". As the capital of Angkor had been decided by King Yelun Bama I, the ruins of Rollos left unfinished reservoirs and temples. The Lolai Temple is under repair. Relying on the Lolai Temple, it is a newly built temple. How does this modern color compare with the original red? There is a "egg flower" tree outside Luolai Temple. Tropical flowers and trees in Cambodia can be seen everywhere, and we often see that I can name the "egg flower" with almost no leaves, "Phoenix flower" with few leaves, blooming all the way "Triangle plum" which I did not photograph. Best point for Portrait Photography - "with the new temple this row of windows, try, the effect is how.
At present, the whole temple is being renovated, maybe some maintenance. If it is not maintained, I think it will collapse. There is a newly built temple nearby. It is interesting to see two temples, not the same religion. There is also a village beside it. It's not big. It's good to have an organization to help students here.
Luolei Monastery is the first scenic spot of the Rolls Site Group. Because of its long history, half of it has completely collapsed and the bricks lie on the ground. Now the shelf has been put up for partial support and fixing, and ready for repair. Next to it is a Buddhist temple in use. You can take off your shoes and visit it. In Cambodia, you can take Buddha statues. There is no taboo in this respect.
Let's go to Lolai first. Here's a relatively new temple. It feels a little like Chiang Mai. The murals on the top are bright and delicate.
Luolai Temple was built in 893 on an island in the middle of the first artificial pond in Khmer history by Saoyebama II. Now the pond has dried up and become a paddy field. Inside was Shiva Linga, with Sanskrit seals inscribed on the doorframe, inscribed on them for his relatives who built the temple. Luolai Temple is a monastery where the king sacrifices his ancestors headed by his father and becomes the last major temple before the capital was moved to Angkor. Six palaces were built, but now four remain. (In my opinion, there are only three, because only a small part of one is left.)
It belongs to one of the three main scenic spots of Rolls Group outside Siem Reap. Luolai Temple was built in 893. It was a monastery where the king worshipped his ancestors during the period of Yasuba-mo I. At that time, it was built on an island in the middle of a large storage pool. Now the pool water has dried up. Between the four halls, there are cross-shaped sinks. At the junction of the sinks, there is a statue of Shiva.
