Happy Tuesday Y'all!
Today I am continuing to share some of the temples we saw while on the small circuit tour in Angkor Wat. At this point, I feel like I will be sharing temple pictures with you guys for months! Oh well, I guess the consequence of taking a lot of pictures is having a lot to catch up on.
Ta Nei was built in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII. It was built to be a holy reservoir and was dedicated to the Buddha.
Banteay Kdei means 'A Citadel of Chamders'. It was built in the 12th century during the reign of Jayavarman VII.
While Ta Nei and Banteay Kdei are on a much smaller scale than Angkor Wat or Ta Proem- there is something just as special and unique about them.
Everything we read suggested on spending longer than a day in the complex, and I completely agree. I think going to a lot of different temples in one day is hard, but it's worth it. Matt and I did two days at the temples with a break in between. This worked out well because we were so templed out after the first day, but after our break- we were ready to go again.
