  Justin & Trisanna at East Mebon
by Rodan44

East Mebon is a Brahmanic temple built by King Rajendravarman at the end of the 10th century. Similar in design to its neighbor Pre Rup, this mountain-temple would appear to be quite decayed at first glance, with the brick towers crumbling badly. However, upon closer inspection you will find wonderful elephant and lion statues as well as a beautifully carved doors and columns. A worthwhile stop.
