About Beng Mealea, Siem Reap

Located 40 km east of the Angkor group of temples and 77 km from the city of Siem Reap, the Beng Mealea is also a Hindu temple built by Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. The temple is built from sandstones and has Buddhist motifs carved on its walls in a few places. The World Heritage Site has a largely unknown history other than being built by the King Suryavarman II, the temple is smaller than the main Angkor Wat temple but still larger than most in the country and has extensive carvings from the Hindu mythology. 

Made out of sandstone, the temple itself remains largely unrestored with tree and bushes covering almost entirety of the temple and the structure lying in giant stone heaps all over the site. The architectural style is similar to Angkor Wat, and the temple itself used to be the center of a town with its own complete moat and walls. Even though the site faces east, the entrances from the other 3 sides and the site is made up of three galleries and a central sanctuary. 

The jungle temple has become a major tourist attraction and is one of the hidden temples around Angkor wat that the majority of the tourist population did not know about before. Built on the ancient Preah Khan Kompong Svay royal highway, the temple is a great opportunity for trekking through nature to find this hidden gem of Cambodian history. The temple gives the feeling of natural reclamation, and the abandonment feels enticing for people looking to search for a piece of history itself. The piles of stone and fallen walls and structures give access to many otherwise unreachable places making this one of the most fun places to explore.

    • Trip to Cambodia

      Mr. Sameer from Lotus Incoming was extremely supportive and accommodating, right from sending multiple quotes to arranging for everything needed to ensure that I was comfortable and safe throughout the trip, as I was a solo traveller. The guides of the day tours he had organized were a treasure trove of information and stories from Hindu mythology, which are essential for understanding the architecture of Angkorian temples. He personally organized last minute bookings of a microlight aviation and ziplining. Thank you Sameer for a memorable trip!

      The tour was well organised and to our satisfaction. Our thanks to Mr Sameer for the good arrangements made. Our stay at Siem Reap was especially memorable with a good informative guide and good sightseeing arrangement via cab. The Vietnam leg was satisfactory and nothing much to write about apart from the Halong Bay trip. It was interesting too.

      Sameer from Lotus Travels organised my itinerary perfectly in Cambodia. He was very flexible and patient in hearing all my queries. He also responded to my distress calls anytime of the day during the trip. Also, he was kind enough to meet us at Siem Reap since he was living there. The right activities for my back pack trip was suggested. Among all the quotes given, Lotus had the best deal and covered everything I needed. Would recommend this operator if you are travelling to other places as well.

    • Trip to Vietnam

      1. The arrangements in Cambodia and Vietnam are very good. But the Indian counterpart Travel triangle, New Delhi needs lot of improvement. 2. The system software used by the company is still to be developed. We do not know it is software design problem or yje people who have to maintain and update the data are at fault. it keeps on giving reminders for payment even after we have paid and got acknowledgements. The only reply by TT staff is " Dont worry, Ignore the reminders". 3. Even though it was a customized tour for us , the most interesting points were out of itenary for us. Like Buntey srei. 4. the arrangements for travel, hotel accommodation and guide services were very good. Food arrangements were Excellent. 5. Visiting High cost showrooms was not called for as we need to spend time usefully rather than spending at a plce where we dont make any purchases. It is loss of time for Tourists and the Showroom people. 6. Travel from Cambodia to Vietnam should have been planned by Air. Reason is the visa process in Airport is more Organised and faster. Also the time spent in travel and Waiting at Visa Counter in Custom check post was too much.

    Beng Mealea is largely an abandoned temple which has just become accessible to visitors. There are no public facilities so to speak of, and one should not expect to find public bathrooms here.

    The site is built on the way to Preah Khan, and there are a number of attractions near the ancient temple. One can visit Koh Ker or the Kulen Mountain near the temple.

    Beng Mealea literally means ‘Lotus Pond.’ It is also called the Jungle Temple.
