Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
One of the best-preserved temples in the Angkor city and part of a World Heritage Site, Eastern Mebon attracts visitors with its well-preserved elephant statues and five cone-shaped pillars. Climb the four stairways guarded by the picturesque elephants and admire the stone carvings of verses from Hindu mythology and historical scripts. While the whole complex honors Shiva and the parents of the king Rajendravarman II, the small altars inside the pillars are dedicated to other Hindu deities. Along with the exquisite examples of architecture, the temple stands out for its use of red brick made from iron-rich clay. Put Eastern Mebon into our Siem Reap vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 东梅奔有着吴哥地区最高的台阶,我是一个175的女人,台阶快到我的膝盖,需要很卖力才可以爬到塔上。 门口有皮雕可以购买,手工匠人现场雕刻,据说是政府的文遗项目,因此皮雕卖的比较贵,政府也会从中收取一定好处。 
  • Here's another typical times! Here are the elephants revered for their importance (as also in Thailand).

  • An interesting shrine, at the corners of the statues of elephants. Towers are assembled from a small red brick, unlike other temples. Fairly steep stairs climbing upwards. Beautiful temple.

  • We came here over 2 hours early because we heard sunset here is so mobbed. Sunset ended up being very underwhelming but this was still a nice structure to climb.
  • Our tour guide suggest us to see the sunset here as other more famous locations will be super crowded and you need to queue. Though the sunset here is not very impressive. It is however a good place to chill and relax while you are waiting for the sunset.
  • What can I say? We enjoyed all the temples, this was part of the large circuit.
  • Interesting but not that impressive for its sunset view.
  • One of the amazing temple in Angkor Temple Complex.
