Riding a bicycle first goes to Numeg Temple, then follows the route on the map to Baqiong Temple not far away. It's very quiet here. Generally, tourists don't come here, so there are no tourists. There are farmland around. Baqiong Temple is a relatively small scale, with three east-facing minarets on the same platform, and it is also a Shiva-style building.
Baqiong Monastery is next to Cardamom Monastery. It's a small red brick building. This Buddhist temple was built by the same architect who designed the East Mebon temple in East Mebon. Even in the Khmer era, where there were many inscriptions left, it was the only architect to remain famous in the world. There are three towers facing east side by side on the same altar, and three brick main halls. Although the remains are small, there are also gates, moats and reservoirs on the East side. Sandstone is used as reinforcing material at the opening, and stone inscriptions remain in each of the three towers. There is a stone lion carved from sandstone in the center. Baqiong Temple worships Shiva and represents Mount Xumi. It has five floors. There are eight pagodas under the central pagoda. There are also early gypsum reliefs. It's also a good experience to listen to Buddha's voice while enjoying a moment of peace in the sunset.
Baqiong Temple is very small. Three brick towers are situated on the red sandstone base. The first two stone lions stand on both sides of the steps leading to the central tower. The tower has been in disrepair for a long time and many places have cracked. It is supported by wood everywhere to prevent further damage to the tower. Falling lintels with exquisite carvings have now been put aside, repair work has begun, and scaffolding for construction has been erected around the brick tower on the right. The temple is located between the Royal Bath Pool and the Nutmeg Temple.
The main buildings here are five spire Buddhist pagodas standing on high platforms, which can be seen from a distance. They are also the most famous landmark building in Angkor Wat and become the absolute protagonist in the propaganda pictures. In front of the Buddhist temple, two water pools are still intact, and the water is still ripple, the lotus is overflowing and the "reflection of the five pagodas" has become the most classic photographic landscape. For the protection of cultural relics, the temple is paved with wooden pavements, which are accessible in all directions.
Baqiong Temple is the outer ring of Angkor Wat, which is far from the main scenic spot of Angkor Wat. It is suggested to rent Tutu here. Of course, if you are strong enough, you can rent a bicycle to visit Baqiong Temple. When Baqiong Monastery arrived, some of the buildings were being repaired. The whole scenic area was yellow and yellow. There were five floors. The top floor was like the top of a fan-shaped temple tower. You could climb up from the bottom. You could feel that the temples in Angkor Wat were built very high, and the staircase between stairs was also very high. It was a bit difficult to climb up.
It's a bit incredible to preserve the monuments of the tenth century. Very vicissitudes of life.
An ancient temple which has gone through vicissitudes of life has its own characteristics.
After visiting the Nutmeg Temple, the guide lobbied for another temple beside it. It was almost the same. Don't go there. Ask your opinions. I said I should go anyway. Since I came, why should I miss it? So we walked a short way to the Baqiong Temple. Baqiong Temple is a monument of the tenth century. The site area is not too large. There are three brick towers facing east side by side. There are stone inscriptions on them. On the East side, there are still buildings, moats and reservoirs. Tourists here are scarce, and even more vicissitudes.
