See some of the oldest temples dating back to the Khmer civilization at Roluos Temples. Built of brick and sandstone-- typical for the classical Khmer period--the three temples carry characteristic decorative elements, such as columns and lintels ornamented with leaf patterns, niches with female figures, monster heads, and representations of Hindu gods. Look for the remnants of a protective wall that originally encircled the temples. If you want to explore ancient monuments at your own pace and far from the crowds, this may be the right place for you.
