Lolei, Siem Reap

1.2
A modestly sized yet scenic Hindu temple, Lolei honors both the lord Shiva and the family of Khmer king Yasovarman I. With its architecture closely related to symbolism and mythology, the structure requires a bit of explication to understand. The front and back four pillars represent the king's parents and grandparents, respectively, and the other engravings on the sandstone depict deities such as the sky god on his elephant, as well as animals and scenes from local legends.

  • This building is ugly, inaccessible, and covered in scaffolding. Try again in 5 years when it's been cleaned up. Nothing to see here, folks... move along  more »
  • Lolei was one of the earliest temple in the area, but unfortunately under restoration and cordoned off so there really was not much to see. You could still get a peep of some of the carvings.  more »
