Pre Rup

Temple Mountain Complex in Siem Reap

Sorry, deze pagina is nog niet in je taal vertaald...

    Pre Rup is a large temple that contains well-preserved carvings of fine detail. This architecturally and artistically excellent temple is located just south of the East Baray and is similar in construction to the East Mebon which was built a few years earlier. The false doors on the upper level are of especially excellent quality.

    It had been believed that Pre Rup was a mortuary temple, but it was actually King Rajendravarman II’s state temple, and was the second temple to be built at Angkor after the capital was returned from Koh Ker. It was constructed in the late 10th century.

    Climbing to the top of the temple affords a sweeping view of the surrounding countryside jungle and rice paddies, and it is also a popular place for watching the sunset. You can reach Pre Rup after 20 minutes' walk south from East Baray.
