Siem Reap: Pre Rup and East Mebon

weekendsidetrip

Pre Rup and East Mebon are the two temples that I also enjoyed. They are both elevated so you just have to climb the stairs and enjoy the whole view of the temple from there. It’s easy to explore. Both of these temples are really beautiful, they both have this mountain like towers that are really interesting.

East Mebon was built in a artificial island at the center of East Baray reservoir. The only way to go to this temple before is by riding a boat.

Pre Rup is the last temple I visited when I was in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is a good temple to end my Angkor trip.

Pre Rup’s modern meaning is ‘turn the body’. Maybe, this temple is their funeral. Grandest funeral home ever!!!

Pre Rup is the tallest temple that I’ve visited. The stairs are very steep. I just told myself that this is the last temple for this trip, so suck it up! I’m having a temple sickness because all I did that day was to visit temple. I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy the trip, but as a human you’ll come to a point that even if it is the most beautiful thing ever you just had enough of it.
