Visit of the temples Mebon, Pre Rup, Prah Khan and Neak Pean, all quite different in style and purpose. The Mebon is an Hindu temple dedicated to the god Shiva, built on a tiny island in the centre of the now dry Eastern Baray. The Pre Rup, a huge mountain-temple, was used for royal funerals.
The huge Buddhist temple Pra Khan, surrounded by jungle, was built to celebrate a victory after invading Cham armies whilst the Neak Pean, known for its coiled snakes, represented a mythological lake in the Himalayas.
