2- Beng Melea Temple:
Beng Melea (Indiana’s Jones Temple), is a spectacular jungle temple around 70km drive to the northeast of Siem Reap. It is one of the “new” highlights of Cambodia, having only been clear of land mines at the end of 2003.
Built by Suryavarman II, in the style of Angkor Wat; its scale is huge, being well over 1sq. kilometer within its moat. Approached by a four causeway, Beng Melea appears to be a huge pile of rubble partially hidden in the trees. Once you get closer the high walls, the ancient Khmer Architecture reveals itself. Cloaked in vegetation and with few concessions to tourism; this temple looks like it would have done when the French explorers found it.
A new road linking Siem Reap to Beng Melea was cut through the jungle in 2003, and is now all paved; and you can see the countryside and everyday life of the rural villages. It takes around one and half hours to drive there. Beng Melea is not yet on the main tourists trail but word is spreading fast; so come here now as this fabulous place will “NOT STAY’ like it for too long!!!!
