West Mebon

Little left to see

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

Built atop an artificial island in the waters of the West Baray, other than two still-standing gopuras there isn't all that much else left to see of the original West Mebon.

Built upon the orders of Udayadityavarman II, it is thought that perhaps the central sanctuary here was constructed of wood, as that would explain why there is so little left. One impressive find though was a massive bronze statue of Vishnu found in 1936. The statue is now at the National Museum in Phnom Penh.
