Khleangs

The Khleangs (North and South) are a pair of sandstone buildings within the walls of Angkor Thom on the Northern side. They were constructed in the late 10th century during the reign of Jayavarman V and most likely served as accomodation for visiting noblemen and ambassadors. The area around these buildings are largely

vegetated, so visiting hours are best in the strong light of midday. There is little carvings and art visible although above the doors there's a royal oath of allegiance, which is why people are led to believe that it was noblemen that were housed within. These temples are a definite notable visit when entering the city of Angkor Thom, and you can expect to spend about 10 minutes here.
