Krol Romeas

A curiosity

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

One of Angkor's little known curiosities! Normally stone could only be used for religious buildings and while the Khmers made an exception for bridges, which they built out of laterite, they also made an exception for Krol Romeas.

Situated in a wooded area just to the right of the road after leaving Angkor Thom's north gate on the way to Preah Khan, Krol Romeas is not a temple and is thought to have been constructed as an ............. (We'll let you guess!). All that can be seen today is a deep laterite walled enclosure or pit with obvious evidence of additional wooden constructions. Clue — it was within easy distance of the parade ground and royal palace area, but just outside the populated area of 'downtown' Angkor Thom.
