Mangalartha

Little visited

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2 stars

A pleasant stroll takes you to Mangalartha — take the track leading to the East gate of Angkor Thom and some 200-300m before arriving you'll see a track branching off to the right.

This is a small single-shrined, sandstone temple set in dense forest. While it's an attractive setting, the temple isn't spectacular albeit with some decent carvings lying around. Its importance lies in it being, with the exception of upgrades to some of the Preah Pithu group, one of the last stone temples to be built at Angkor.

If you want a bit of peace and quiet and fancy a stroll in the woods, wander down to the well preserved but rarely visited east gate (Death Gate) and take in Mangalartha on the way!
