A walled field

This is not a temple, out Tuktuk driver said that this was once a sort of library - so that explains it's structure. It's like just walls around, and no central building inside.

I like this temple! It is opposite Thommanom. And it was my third stop of the small tour circuit after Phnom Bakheng and Thommanom. Again, it provides more space for you to appreciate and take it in all my yourself. I was the only tourist when I was there.

Nothing much. Small temple. No differentiation from other temples in Siem Reap. Will not miss anything if you did not stop at this temple. Good only for a visit if you need a rest stop along the way between attractions.

Chau Say Tevoda is a smaller temple that is worth a quick stop. It wasn't quite as shady as it's sister-temple across the road, Thommanon. There were some small stalls with food, drink and the ever-present cheap t-shirts/skirts.

Restoration is in progress with PRC funding efforts, this cute temple close to the Thommanon offers a brief stopping visiting on our way back from Angkor Wat

A very small temple along the small circuit. Just across of the Thommanon temple. Restoration is going on but still able to view the difference between old and new age of the temple. Just walk around before hit more big temples.

Across the road from Thommanon, it is similar in structure. Built in a later period, it is in a worse condition than its sister across the road. Restoration works seem to be going on now. We took some time off to have coconuts at the stalls here. Lovely!

This is the second of the two hindu temples built to the east of Angkor Thom and this is on the southern side of the track leading from the Victory Gate and opposite Thommanon. Very similar to Thommanon in its size and detailing but with a raised walkway. The preservation has been a little unkind to it but once again... More

Chau Say Tevoda is on your right just after leaving the Angkor Thom complex via the East Victory Gate. It forms a pair with Thommanon across the road but was built a few years later in the early 12thC. A walkway leads from the temple to Siem Reap River just a few hundred metres away.

Chau Say Tevoda is just across the road from the Thommanon, and is quite similar in layout and size, though somewhat a little bit more worn. A feature not found on the Thommanon, though, is the elevated walkway supported by stubby round pillars, a miniature version of the grand avenue on columns found on the Baphuon. And, I caught Buddhist... More
