Chau Say Tevoda, Siem Reap

3.3
Chau Say Tevoda is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia. It is located just east of Angkor Thom, directly south of Thommanon across the Victory Way . Built in the mid-12th century, it is a Hindu temple in the Angkor Wat period. The temple is dedicated to Shiva and Vishnu, and with unique types of female sculptures of devatas enshrined in it. The Buddha images in the temple have been interpreted to have been built during the reign of Dharanindravarman, father of Jayavarman VII, who ruled from Preah Khan of Kompong. The temple was in a dilapidated state with 4,000 of its elements lying scattered on the embankment and in the Siem Reap River. Many of these elements were used in the restoration work carried out by a Chinese team between 2000 and 2009 under a restoration project sponsored by the People's Republic of China. The temple was reopened in late 2009.LocationChau Say Tevoda is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia located just to the northeast of the ancient capital Angkor Thom's east gate, directly south of Thommanon across the Victory Way. It is on a road which has the Thomannon temple on its opposite side, from the east gate, and a further away by to a bridge built with carved stones from temple ruins in the vicinity; the bridge is without any river flowing beneath it in view of the shifting nature of the course of the Siem Reap River.

  • From Angkor Wat, about 5 minutes drive to the Zhou Sa temple, it was built in the early 12th century A.D. Soavaman reign period. The temple, which is 170 metres from the north, was built for the same period, with the same architectural layout and structure. But it is not clear why these two groups of buildings were built. Only in the late 19th century, when the French officer, Zhou Sashin, found the group, he learned from the locals that the temple was dedicated to Chausay, so the French named it Zhou Sa Temple.

  • Located between Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm, two must-see sites, Chau Say Thom serves little thumb. The structure is small, still under renovation. But for history lovers you will find here many details away from the throngs of tourists. In short, at the turn of another visit why not, otherwise to avoid, prefer Thommanon in front.

  • On the way from Ta prohm in the Angkor Thom is one of three monuments. If you are face to face with the thomanon so go on the set. Excellent, well preserved. The peaceful calm and carefully feel the air in Siem Reap. Fewer tourists are lesser known as the ruins, I like personally.

  • Prasat Chau Say Tevoda was built to represent, dedicate and thank to the Fathers of the world. Chau (Chao) = Grandchild, Say (Sai)'s just a name, Tevoda (Tevda) = Angel
  • Right across the road from Thommanon is Chau Say Tevoda. It is a similar size and has a similar design. A lot of restoration work has gone into improving Chau Say Tevoda and it’s easy to access and doesn’t take too long to see. It’s best to consider both these temples together, to understand their position in the ancient city.
  • We visited this place on September 1 of 2017 somewhere around afternoon and witnessed an amazing sight of sun shining onto the statue of Buddha in the right part of the structure.
  • A small beautiful temple near Angkor Thom that is definitely worth stopping. It is nicely restored and the temple consisted of several towers on a raised tier. It is another of those less popular temple and that makes it a joy to wander and admire its beauty. It is a good way to spend half an hour and across the road is Thommanon, another small temple.
  • This place is not big nor famous but it gives a true feeling of Cambodia. I don't know why I have such feeling you may find answers here.
