East Mebon Temple At Siem Reap

East Mebon is interesting for its commanding set of towers and a couple of nice animal carvings. And it used to be in a big reservoir, only accessible by boat. Beats trudging.

Presence felt. A classic, symmetrical layout of four towers surrounding a main tower. Nice brick work.


Animal species #1, a couple of fat-ass lions, guarding the entrance. Heading in.

Line up the brick sandstone towers in your shot correctly and infinity starts to happen.


In the distance, animal species #2, a guarding elephant. Once more to the tower.

Getting wide at the corner of a temple tier, staring down one of the elephants.
