Neak Pean

Neak Pean is a Buddhist temple located North-East of the walls of Angkor Thom. It was constructed in the late 12th century by Jayavarman VII, and is one of the most stunning sites of the Angkor Archaeological Park. It consists of a central temple tower which sits

at the axis of a 'lotus-like' pattern of eight reflection pools. The central temple is faced by a magnificent statue of a horse 'Balaha', who was said to save drowning sailors. Although this site was originally dedicated to Buddha, Neak Pean posesses several Hindu carvings. You can spend up to an hour here absorbing it's beauty at any time of the year, but it's recommended to attend in the wet season when the reflection pools are full of water. This site is a go-to for anybody looking for the most stunning of the AAP sites.
