Explore the World Heritage Site of Thommanon, an intricately rendered, stone Hindu temple nestled amid lush Cambodian nature. One of a pair of temples, this modestly sized site was constructed in the 12th century (during the reign of Suryavarman II), and is dedicated to the deities Shiva and Vishnu. A well-preserved example of ornate Khmer architecture, its lasting sandstone design is attributed to the builders' decision to construct using stone entirely, omitting the wooden supports that were used in other sites in the area. Look out for the carved statues of the divine female "Devatas" in abundance around the site, each displaying their own "mundra," or symbolic hand gesture, as well as ornately carved panels depicting various examples of Hindu lore. Consider bringing a torch to illuminate these internal parts of the temple for closer inspection. To visit Thommanon and other attractions in Siem Reap, use our Siem Reap vacation route planner.

  • This is a small temple that you can see in about ten minutes or so. The most important features are not the overall design but the carved decorations. They are in a relatively good condition and give you a sense of how things would have looked at some of the less-preserved sites.
  • This is just a small temple but is still worth stoping.
  • A perfect little gem. Don't miss it.
  • 類似於對面的神廟 所以只有匆匆來去 在北方拍照留念 可惜在時間的洪流之下 無法細心領會每一個寺廟之美 旁邊有個市集 可以採買一些衣物 紀念品等
  • The story of a small, but most of the remaining relief ^^
