Neak Pean, Angkor Wat: 15 reviews and 29 photos
A rather unique temple surrounded by water. It has a large square pool surrounded by 4 smaller square pools. In the centre of the central pool is a circular island encircled by 2 nagas. In the pool area, there were once 4 statues, but only 1 remains, reconstructed from the debris. The figure has the body of a horse with 4 human legs. There are 4 water spouts from the central pool to the 4 smaller ones. The spouts are in the form of an elephant's head, a horse's head, a lion's head and human's head.
I was there in May, not the wet season, as you can see from my pictures. The pools are dry. I'd seen pictures of the pool with water in it. I think they were taken in the rainy season at the end of the year.
