Kbal Spean, Siem Reap
Categories: Waterfalls, Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Carved into a terraced sandstone riverbed deep in the jungle, Kbal Spean features elaborate scenes from the Sanskrit epic Ramayana. Follow a 2 km (1.2 mi) uphill walk to the site, pausing to see a balancing rock and waterfalls en route. Once there, admire the exquisite carving of Vishnu cut into the bank, as well as intricate floral motives washed by the clear water cutting through the rock. Search for the pink sandstone's countless lingas, rendered in the 10th and 11th centuries to bless the waters, and look for board game-like carvings on the very bed. Wash your hands here for good luck. Hire a guide to explain the Hindu tradition to you, and bring plenty of water.

シェムリアップ市内から1時間ほど、入り口からトレッキング程度の山道を40分ほど登った先、川の中に見ることが出来るこの遺跡は、汗を流して歩いた人だけが見ることの出来る素晴らしいもの。前夜に雨が降った幸運もあり、適度な水量の中に見ることが出来るレリーフやリンガは、神聖さを感じます。Away from the entrance from Siem Reap city about 1 hour and 40 minutes or so trek around the mountain climbed the ruins can be seen in the river is amazing to see people sweat and walked only one. Relief can be seen in a reasonable amount of water and good luck rained on the eve or lingam feel the holiness.show original
