Lolei, Siem Reap
(2.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Its okay. Most of the ruins are being restored at the moment. Good way to see how the people work on the restoration project
  • Having a small tour for a half day to Hariharalaya, the old capital of khmer empire. You will visit three Prasat before arriving Kompong Pluk community, the floating village.
  • Beautiful Khmer Empire architecture. Some parts still under construction.
  • One of the oldest temples. Made mostly of brick instead of stone. As of December 2015, it's under renovation
