Day 3 : Kbal Spean & Banteay Srei Day Tour
Morning at Kbal Spean:
Kbal Spean ("Head Bridge") is an Angkorian era site on the southwest slopes of the Kulen Hills, 25 km from the main Angkor group of Siem Reap.
Kbal Spean, commonly known as the valley of a 1000 Lingas, consists of a series of stone carvings in and around the Stung Kbal Spean river. The motifs for the stone carvings are roughly three: myriads of lingams, depicted as neatly arranged bumps that cover the surface of a rock; lingam - yoni designs; and various Hindu mythological motifs, including depictions of gods and animals.
Have your lunch at a local Khmer Restaurant.
Afternoon at Banteay Srei:
Banteay Srei (or Bantey Srey) is a 10th century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. Located in the area of Angkor in Cambodia, it lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km (15 miles) north-east of the main group of Angkor that once belonged to the medieval capitals of Yasodharapura and Angkor Thom. Banteay Srei is built largely of red sandstone, a medium that lends itself to the elaborate decorative wall carvings which are still observable today.
The buildings themselves are miniature in scale, unusually so when measured by the standards of Angkorian construction. These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and have led to its being widely praised as a "precious gem", or the "jewel of Khmer art."
Back at your accommodation in Mom's GuestHouse in Siem Reap.
Day 4 : Roluos Group and Tonle Sap Floating Village
Morning at the Roluos Group: Starting with Bakong, the first temple mountain constructed by rulers of the Khmer empire at Angkor. In the final decades of the 9th century A.D, the Roluos Group, 15 km east of Siem Reap, served as the official state temple of King Indravarman I in the ancient city of Hariharalaya.
Roluos Group was the capital of Indravarman I (877 to 889). These were the first temples built to last and are made of brick with some carved plaster reliefs. The group is made up of the three temples of Preah Ko, Bakong, and Lolei. Many of the later temples in the Angkor group are based on these earlier temples.
Back in Siem Reap and have your lunch at a local Khmer Restaurant.
