In remarkable condition
What we say:
Thomannon underwent a major reconstruction under the watchful eye of Groslier in the 1960s and is now in remarkable condition. Like many monuments, this was originally a walled-in structure, but the outside wall has largely collapsed leaving the gopuras standing alone almost like mini-temples in their own right. Probably started by Jayavarman IV and continued by Dharanindravarman I, it seems to have been completed by Suryavarman II around the middle of the 12th century. (Dharanindravarman's influence is shown by the presence of some Buddhist imagery at this temple.) Many of the site's lintels are worn but the site is noteworthy for some of the devaratas with their fancy headgear that flank some of the sanctuary walls.Last updated: 27th December, 2009
