Thommanon, Siem Reap

4.2
Explore the World Heritage Site of Thommanon, an intricately rendered, stone Hindu temple nestled amid lush Cambodian nature. One of a pair of temples, this modestly sized site was constructed in the 12th century (during the reign of Suryavarman II), and is dedicated to the deities Shiva and Vishnu. A well-preserved example of ornate Khmer architecture, its lasting sandstone design is attributed to the builders' decision to construct using stone entirely, omitting the wooden supports that were used in other sites in the area. Look out for the carved statues of the divine female "Devatas" in abundance around the site, each displaying their own "mundra," or symbolic hand gesture, as well as ornately carved panels depicting various examples of Hindu lore. Consider bringing a torch to illuminate these internal parts of the temple for closer inspection. Plan your visit to Thommanon and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Siem Reap trip itinerary planning site.
