1000 of Lingas, Kbal Spean & Banteay Srei Full Day Private Tour
At 08.30 you will meet our tour guide at your hotel in Siem Reap and we head further out through rural countryside to the small but beautiful Temple of Banteay Srei.
This temple is largely built of pink sandstone, a harder rock that can be more elaborately carved and better survives the rigours of time. This is an opportunity to capture some good photographs of the clear and detailed carvings.
Then we transfer to visit Kbal Spean, about 49km from Siem Reap Town and it literally means "The head of the River.” It is one of the rivers in 1000 Lingas that made up of unique Lingas.
Lingas stands into the riverbed of the Siem Reap River. It was believed that the Lingas spiritually "fertilized” the waters that fed the Eastern Bay and irrigated the rice fields.
Not to be missed is Banteay Samre: Its rose-coloured sandstone walls are decorated with carvings and bas-reliefs, which are among the most accomplished Angkor has to offer.
- The Banteay Samre is one of the smaller temples of Angkor. Its lintels and pediments contain well preserved carvings of both Hindu and Buddhist scenes
- A spectacularly carved riverbed, Kbal Spean is set deep in the jungle to the northeast of Angkor. More commonly referred to in English as the ‘River of a Thousand Lingas’, the name actually means ‘bridgehead’, a reference to the natural rock bridge here.
