You can feel like a true explorer at Beng Melea. The temple remains overgrown and crumbled down and you are given permission to climb through here...... which is hard to compute as your instincts are to be super respectful and kind to the majesty of...More

Beng Mealea, about 45K NE of Angkor Wat park, is definitely worth the drive and the extra $5USD entrance fee. Other reviewers encountered crowds here, but on a February morning, it was much quieter and more intimate than the top three Angkor Wat temples. Here,...More

Beng Melea was our first temple stop during our visit to Angkor and it was awe inspiring. The history behind it’s construction, built before Angkor Wat, it’s discovery in 1930 after centuries of being hidden in the jungle, and finally the story of it’s senseless...More

If you visited Ta Phrom and enjoyed the more raw nature of that temple, then you should love Beng Mealea. Other than the construction of walk bridges, the temple is still basically in ruins, and that is what makes it far more interesting. You will...More

This is the only temple we visited where you walked on a platform instead of around the ruins. There were so many tourists that it was nearly impossible to enjoy. Still , we loved the green wall at the end with a tree in it,...More

It was built as a Hindu temple, but there are some carvings depicting Buddhist motifs. Its primary material is sandstone and it is largely un-restored, with trees and thick brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards and many of its stones lying in great heaps....More

This temple complex is a bit out of the way, about 45 K North East of Angkor Wat complex, but is worth it as it has its' own unique style plus you drive through native villages and have opportunity to shop with palm sugar vendors....More
