East Mebon and The Land Mine Museum in Cambodia

Banteay Srey is a late 10th century temple commonly known as the temple of the women. What made this temple outstanding and worthwhile seeing was the many different types of stone used to build it. Pink sandstone, limestone and laterite. These gave the temple a beautiful coloring. Banteay Srey is also small, and covered with the most delicate and intricate carvings of all the Angkorian temples. The colors are best before 10:00 am or after 2:00 pm when we were there. It's also less crowded. There was only one other group along with us.
Norang Chap was our guide. Very personable and extremely knowledgeable. Norang is one of the over 1,000 guides in Siem Riep but if you are looking for an English-speaking guide, e-mail him at: chapnarong@yahoo.com, or telephone: (855) 12963492.
