(3.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Some small ruins, visitors or even in the ruins of Angkor shop souvenirs such as t-shirts or Ali Baba pants, prints and miniature statues, buildings or tents datsu, exists. Most people with basic English, using Chinese, Korea, and Japan, to sell comes. Not online is because I think the market rent is high, this shop is a bigger width of the discount, really cheap, but the ruins of which we can't afford, necessarily and invariably hailed. The food pleasant will become. Is the most painful in young children "blisters ASU no Yoichi models,?" it is said. If you buy, more and more parents children to use will be. How do I do? He took children had candy bought from Japan. Please give giving cute children, come everyone buys a lot of delicious candy in Japan. There were many before this cute children.

  • This temple and his twin, Thommanon, are facing each other and are two small Hindu temples (late 11.mo century).

  • This is a small complex, stabilized and renovated by the Chinese, opposite Thomammon. The two temples are in some ways a pair and worth visiting if you are going this way to, for example, Ta Prohm.

  • 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.
  • Goood
  • 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.
  • Nice small old temple
