Chau Say Tevoda, Siem Reap

3.2
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.

    It's great to see this temple for a quick stop, it won't take long as for the design it's quite typical with other temples in Siem Reap. The most you can spend here is 15-30 minutes.  more »

    As the Thommanon located in front of it, is a small temple just outside the walls of Angkor Thom: both are worth a quick visit, given the fact that you are literally on the street.

    Two small monuments very close and similar in level and style while the dates of its construction is not known exactly. They belong to the best time of classical art and represent two variations of a single theme of the composition

    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 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.
