Prasat Kravan, Siem Reap

4.0
Visit Prasat Kravan, which consists of five towers in a row, and admire the impressive bas-reliefs. Inspect the detail of the incredible brick carvings, as well as sculptures representing Vishnu and Laksmi. In the central tower, you can see more images of Vishnu, while looking for niches containing depictions of guardians. Next, visit the south and north towers, both of which are dedicated to Laksmi. As the French reconstructed the temple, they used bricks marked "CA," the sign of the Angkor Conservancy; keep an eye out for the mark as you wander the complex.

  • Is the ruins went first. Small look at appointments, to go around Nice, beautiful relief of the central building, but over time, slowly it seems.

  • It's a small temple built in dry bricks without cement, Hindu, even if small, very interesting temple. What is different here is the technology of the décor. Indeed, none of the low relief emerged after, brick molds are designed by integrating the sets, exactly like the Babylonian Sauvix door decorations. If you pass near this small temple, I recommend you stop by to admire the interior decorations of the towers.

  • We are entering an archaeological complex, where you can see the oldest sacral buildings of Angkor (dated 921 ad) dedicated to the worship of the God Vishnu. Interesting reliefs on the bricks (building typical of the place). Worth a visit

  • A lot quieter than most of the other temples around here. Good for a quuck visit
  • Fabulous night the high light of our trip would find it hard to top this throughout the world
  • This is my most favourite one. It made me remember Da Yan Pagoda in Xi'an China. These two have the similar style and are from the influence of Buddhist. This is an evidence that Buddhist spread over at that time to both North and South. North came to China and South to Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia........
  • One of the smaller Angkor temples, Prasat Kravan was created in the 10th century and boasts an impressive facade of red-brick symmetrical towers. The bright orange hue of the stone makes this temple a beautiful spot to stop off at. (Prasat Kravan is usually the first stop on longer tours of the Angkor temple complex.
  • A fine little Hindu temple from the ninth century.
