Chau Say Tevoda, Siem Reap

3.1
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.

  • The Nong Shrine is an interesting group of temples outside the Victory gate. The pattern is not big, but it should be. But the damage is serious, and many of them are later restored. The restoration of a group of Chinese artifacts is responsible for the 繕 of the Temple of the week. The one who likes it most is a very comfortable place to be a person.

  • This small touristy temple is located on a square surrounded by sand (it is an erosion of stone including the laterite), and tree. We approach and discover an enclosure in tiny temples. There are a lot of people. The visit is done quickly, because the temple is small. Time to take some pictures and we're heading the Thommanon temple, right in front.

  • Outside the temple are piles of old stones and broken and there is a sign at the road that it's archaeologists from China who pay for the reconstruction of Chau Say Tevoda Temple which mostly is overdue! visitor time not more than 15 minutes!

  • 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.
  • Excellent experience from this temple a whole character is keeping good since rebuilding
  • 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.
  • Nice small old temple
