Koh Ker is a remote temple site about 120 kilometers northeast of Siem Reap. Being there to experience lonely temples left to the jungle for a millennium and mostly unrestored, this archaeological site has been rarely visited. It is situated in dry Dipterocarp with some semi-evergreen forest providing excellent habitat for wildlife.
Beng Mealea means “lotus pond” is a temple in the Angkor Wat period. It was built as a Hindu temple, but there are some carvings depicting Buddha motifs. Its primary material is sandstone and it is largely unrestored, with trees and thick brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards and many of its stones lying in great heaps.
