Itinerary Details Day 2: Angkor Wat Temple Complex
After breakfast your tour guide will pick you up for an amazing day at Angkor. We first visit Banteay Srei, constructed at the late 10th century by a Brahmin counselor under a power king, Rajendarvarman. It was loosely translated to citadel of the woman, but it is a modern appellation that probably refers to the delicate beauty of the carvings. Along the way we make a stopover at the Preah Dark village and we follow this with a visit the Banteay Samre Temple, adorned with impressive relief’s depicting scenes of Vishunu as well as Krishna legends.
We lunch at a local restaurant and in the afternoon we visit Angkor Thom, the South Gate of Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple (built from the late 12th century to the early 13th century by King Jayavarman VII which consists of 54 towers), the Royal Enclosure, the Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King before we visit Angkor Wat, the largest temples in world. It covers an area of 200 hectares and is surrounded by moat and an exterior wall, which measures 1300 by 1500 meters. Your tour guide will take you back to your hotel in Siem Reap. Your further evening is at your own interpretation.
