East Mebon

East Mebon is a Hindu 'temple mountain' constructed in the late 10th century by Rajendravarman in classic Pre Rup Khmer style. East Mebon is located a few km East of Angkor Thom, and boasts three large levels which are crowned by five towers. It stands on what was

the artificial island at the centre of the now dry East Baray reservoir. It was erected to honour the Hindu God Shiva, and also the parents of the king. It was built using sandstone, brick, laterite and stucco, and has deteriorated largely due to the inclusion of weaker materials than that latter used stone bricks. One of the main attractive features of East Mebon is the large elephant sculptures found on the first and second tiers of the temple. Many people like to visit East Mebon and imagine the water that used to surround it, and is made easier with the relics of boat docks at the foot of the temple which indicates it was once reachable by boat only. You can expect to spend around 45-60 minutes here and it's a definite inclusion in anyones trip to the AAP.
