The first place is Preah Khan. Preah Khan is one of the seven temples of the Grand Circuit. It’s seemed to be undiscovered because it’s located quite far away from the center. Like Ta Phrom, this place is covered by ancient tree and many parts are in ruin. Next, we will move to Neak Pean, a tiny pagoda standing on a small island with a pond surrounding. Neak Pean is considered as the temple of snake because its structure – its base looks like a snake turning around. Then, we will end our morning by visiting the three temples of Ta Som, East Mebon and Preah Rup. Ta Som was built for the King Jayavarman VII‘s father in the 12th century and unpreserved. About East Mebon, this 10th century Pre Rup style temple was dedicated to the god Shiva and parents of the King. The last temple in the morning, Preah Rup, built in the middle of the 10th century, is a combination of nature and human with the mountain – temple structure and major materials (bricks, laterites and sandstone).

These two temples are regarded as the jewel of the Cambodian art and architecture.
