Beng Mealea
Beng Mealea is located 40 kilometers east of the main Angkor Wat complex. The temple was mainly constructed from sandstone, with its architectural style identical to that of Angkor Wat. Because of this, it is thought that Beng Mealea was built in the 12th century under the reign of Suryavarman II. 

The temple grounds are surrounded by a gigantic moat and was once entirely consumed by jungle. This atmospheric temple is oriented toward the east, with entranceways from the other three cardinal directions also. If entering from the south, visitors will find themselves amid piles of chiselled sandstone blocks, sweeping vines, and mysterious dark chambers.

The layout of the temple consists of three enclosed galleries situated around a central tower, which has now completely collapsed. There’s a well-preserved library in the northeastern quadrant, plus extensive carvings of scenes from Hindu mythology and long balustrades formed by bodies of the seven-headed Naga serpent.

Practical Info

Beng Mealea is situated approximately 70 kilometers from Siem Reap. The shortest route to the temple is found by heading north at the town of Dam Dek, located around 40 kilometers from Siem Reap, traveling in the direction of Phnom Penh. Arranging a vehicle and driver from Siem Reap is recommended.

Beng MealeaHalf-day Tours

Beng Mealea

Beng Mealea, located about 60 kilometers from Siem Reap, was built in the middle of the 12th-century, with later additions made during the reign of King Suryavarman II and dedicated to Hinduism. The sprawling jungle covers over a 1-square kilometer of the temple, which is largely overrun by vegetation. You’ll have time for an in-depth exploration of this temple, taking an unusual route to see parts of its ruins that are seldom visited. The temple is now even more accessible than ever, though you can scramble over the tumbled blocks and traverse its walls to see more if you so wish.

Koh Ker & Beng Mealea Excursion Join-in Tour - Free Hotel Pickup

If you are looking for an adventurous “lost temple” feeling or a genuine “explorer” experience, undisturbed by noisy busloads - don’t miss Koh Ker in Preah Vihear Province! It’s the most amazing temple town in a distant jungle location off the beaten track, right in the heart of the remote and undeveloped countryside of northern Cambodia. Left to the vegetation for a millennium, the lonely temples of Koh Ker were not easy to reach for French exlorers in the 19th and 20th century and remained unrestored. Only two decades ago, this region was the last stronghold of Khmer Rouge guerilla fighters. and then we will visit Beng Mealea Temple, the atmospheric jungle temple Beng Mealea, on the way to Koh Ker or in combination with other destinations closer to Angkor. Beng Mealea still looks like in the 19th century, when early French explorers found the huge complex swallowed by the jungle. Most parts of the long abandoned vast compound of Beng Mealea are not yet restored.
