Lolei, Siem Reap
Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
A modestly sized yet scenic Hindu temple, Lolei honors both the lord Shiva and the family of Khmer king Yasovarman I. With its architecture closely related to symbolism and mythology, the structure requires a bit of explication to understand. The front and back four pillars represent the king's parents and grandparents, respectively, and the other engravings on the sandstone depict deities such as the sky god on his elephant, as well as animals and scenes from local legends. Lolei is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Siem Reap Edition.
