This Temple, similar to Chau Say Tevoda Temple (see my review), is easily accessible by wheelchair and crutches from the carpark (slight incline from the carpark, but grass and dirt ground giving good traction) and well worth a visit. Once at the front of it, the temple can be accessed from all sides and the interior too, using a wheelchair. Need to watch out for tree roots sticking out of the ground, but a path can be easily made around these. For those who can stand and walk, there is a raised stone platform surrounding the buildings that is not tall and you can stand on them to get great photos up close and personal with this 12th Century Temple. Otherwise just park your wheelchair in front of the buildings for equally exquisite photos. For those who want to be more adventurous this small temple (single towered) means there are fewer stairs than larger temples (but they are of stone and therefore uneven and also have pieces missing from them and are narrow and steep) to get inside the temple. Take the opportunity to have a panoramic photo of the temple whist you peer out of a window or stand in a doorway. Admire the stone carving statues on the exterior stone walls and the carved pediments too. This temple also had fewer crowds than at other temples which made the going easier. It is an exciting experience to be able to immerse yourself in such ancient and significant history as the Khmer history, and temples such as this one and Chau Say Tevoda allow for everyone of any fitness level to be able to accomplish this.

A stop off on the short circuit for Angkor Wat - not much to see here, stay around 15 mins. Pretty enough.

This is one of the smaller and lesser-known temples compared to the likes of Angkor Wat and Bayon. There is another similarly small temple just across the road from this one (i.e. Chau Say Tevoda), of which you can visit both temples in one stop.

Thommanon is a "minor " temple, so if you are in a hurry or here just for one day, you can skip this temple. The area is not very big and be covered in less than an hour during which you will be able to admire wonderful Apsara carvings very well conserved.

Thommanon is one of a pair of Hindu temples built during the reign of Suryavarman II at Angkor, Cambodia. This small and elegant temple is located east of the Gate of Victory of Angkor Thom and north of Chau Say Tevoda.
