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. The temple, was in a dilapidated state with 4,000 of its elements lying scattered on the embankment and in the Siem Reap River.LocationThe Tevoda is located to the northeast of the ancient capital Angkor Thom's east gate. 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 of the course of the Siem Reap River.HistoryThe temple was reconstructed on the basis of several elements of the temple which were randomly lying around at the site. This restoration was done a Chinese team between 2000- 2009 under a restoration project sponsored by the People's Republic of China. Originally this temple was partly built in the 12th century under the reign of when King Suryavarman II. Further supplementation of structures were done under the reign of Jayavarman VII. Though the temples were built under Hindu kings during the 11th and 12 centuries with predominantly Hindu deities, representation of Buddha images is interpreted by Veronique Degroot and Marijke J. Klokke that these were built under the influence of Dharanindravarman, father of Jayavarman VII, who ruled from Preah Khan of Kompong.

  • 周薩神廟位於小圈行程內, 地方不大遊人不多, 遊玩時間為 20 分鐘已足夠, 神廟內沒有任何文獻記載, 也沒有碑銘,所以不知道建立的年代, 只能根據其建築風格來推斷是12 世紀中葉的建築. 
  • The temple is less crowded, itz a small temple, good for photography, just a calm place with less people, i like it.. 
  • Midway between Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm stopped to see this temple, tiny but nice to see in a short time. It was built in the middle of the 12TH century and is of a hindu Temple.

  • This temple is just a bit further of viceroy gate. Small temple, but quite nice to visit because there was not so many visitors to this synagogue. The form of the temple is well preserved, good to photograph.
  • Nice and small temple. Not as spectacular than the other bigger ones but I'm glad we made a stop here.
  • Beautiful small temple betweem Angkor Thom and East Baray.
  • really Chinese way of restoration, they made things done quickly but with ugly fake stuffs like any Shanzhai works they did.
  • 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.
