On this one day tour, we will leave Siem Reap province and head towards the Thai border. Here you will see one of the most magnificent temples built during the Khmer Empire, Prasat Preah Vihear. This Hindu temple was built on the hilltop and sits on the cliff’s edge. Peah Vihear Temple is a Khmer temple situated atop a 525-metre (1,722 ft) cliff in the Dangrek Mountains, in the Preah Vihear province of northern Cambodia and on the border of Kantharalak district (amphoe) in Sisaket province of eastern Thailand. In 1962, following a lengthy dispute between Thailand and Cambodia over ownership, a majority of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague awarded the temple to Cambodia.
After lunch, we’ll head back towards Siem Reap to go and see Koh Ker temple. This pyramid style temple is one of the earliest temples to be built and predates Angkor Wat and other temples in the area. Koh Ker Group located in the province of Preah Vihear, it was briefly the capital of the Khmer empire between 928 and 944 under king Jayavarman IV and his son Hasavaraman II. After the Khmer empire had been established in the Angkor area (Roluos), Jayavarman IV moved the capital in 928 almost 100km northeast to Koh Ker. Here a vast number of temples were built under his reign, until his successor returned to the Angkor area about twenty years later.↑ Back to top
