KOH KER ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE
AND BENG MELEA TEMPLE
Discover Koh Ker, one of the ancient cities of the Khmer Empire, the remote temple complex located in the middle of the jungle.
Known also by the original name Lingapura was briefly the capital of the whole Kingdom from 928 to 944 CE. In the area were found 180 sanctuaries although today only a few dozen can be visited since many of them are no longer standing or buried in the ground.
Left to the jungle for several centuries and mostly un-restored this amazing archaeological site has been rarely visited until recently.
Mid way from Siem Reap is Beng Melea, another remote temple, completely immersed in the forest, that gives the emotions experienced by the explorers who first ventured into these lands.
This itinerary can be customised based on your actual travel needs and can been extend and combined to other tours.
