Kulen WaterfallBanteay Srei
1000 LINGAS

The river of 1,000 lingas owes its name to the images of Hindu gods, their spouses and the over 1,000 lingas carved on the bed and river banks of the Siem Reap river in Phnom Kulen. The lingas are symbol of God Shiva’s essence and were built to purify the water of the river and make it fertile to then irrigate the rice fields. Along with the lingas, we find various carvings in the river bank depicting various scenes and inscriptions. The most recurrent scene is the recreation of the world fallen into chaos. The carvings and lingas date back to the reign of King Udayadityavarman II and the manpower and technics used to create them over a thousand years ago have surprised archaeologists and scholars, as the King had the course of the river altered in order to carve the lingas on the river bed.

RECLINING BUDDHA

One of the most interesting sites at Phnom Kulen is the massive reclining Buddha at Preah Ang Thom, a 16th century Buddhist monastery. It is a sacred site and pilgrims from all over Cambodia come here to worship. The sculpture, posterior to the Angkor period, is the biggest of its kind in the country and is sculpted in the rocks rising eight meters high against the sky. You can reach it climbing a steep path near the northwest end of Phnom Kulen. From the top the view of the mountain range and the deep cambodian jungle are breathtaking.

SPRING WATER 

Natural Freshwater Pool
The pool shown in the image is located near the Kbal Spean River in Phnom Kulen National Park, Cambodia. The water in this pool is a result of some geological activities occurring beneath the pool. It appears as though there is an underground spring under the pool. A small stream of water flows out of the pool into the Kbal Spean River. The water in the pool is not very hot but appears to contain a lot of minerals.

SRAH DAMREI

The giant elephant on Kulen mountain In my previous article, I have posted about the Kulen Mountain where you can also the elephant pond which I will tell you more here. From my observation, there are big rocks with different shapes so there are no surprised that animals or any statue can be carved from using only one piece of stone or rock. Let’s get to know the elephant! Srah Damrei or Elephant Pond might be named after the Big elephant stood faced West direction to the Pond in front of him.  Mr. J. Boulbet, the French researcher suggested that the pond was built in Kulen era (King Jayavaraman II) early of 9th Century. There are other animals built next to the elephant such as tiger, lions and bull. All carvings were made from only one piece of stone in those areas. There are some inscriptions left on the both sides of the elephant belly stated Indra tapdey Sihak” – meaning the Indra, King or someone’s name who built it with the letter style from pre-Angkorian time perhaps in 8th century. 
BATS CAVE

Bat Cave Our first stop was at a well-camouflaged cave, inside of which are several shrines. The cave is home to thousands of bats as well as several Buddhist monks who sleep in tents deep inside. The moss-covered entrance gives way to narrow passageways which open into several larger chambers. You can walk pretty far into the cave, which requires you to duck under the low ceiling in some places.

PREAH KRAL PAGODA

Preah kral pagoda is hidden place less people know it, it is the nice view of nature landscapes and mountain rocks. This temple is a lot monks are staying and use for meditation, surrounding the temple there are many various statues and king Jayavaraman VII with his first wife and second wife.

Cambodia Banteay Srei Landmine Museum

The Cambodian Landmine Museum and ReliefFacility is a museum located in Cambodia, south of the Banteay Srey Temple complex, 25 kilometers north of Siem Reap, and inside the Angkor National Park. Tourists began hearing stories about a young Khmer man, Aki Ra, who cleared landmines with a stick and had a house full of defused ordnance. Ra began charging a dollar to see his collection, using the money to help further his activities. Thus began the Cambodia Landmine Museum. In 2007 the Cambodian government ordered Aki Ra’s museum closed. He was allowed to move it to a new location 40 kilometers from Siem Reap, near Banteay Srey Temple, inside the Angkor National Park. A Canadian NGO, the Cambodia Landmine Museum Relief Fund, founded by documentary film producer Richard Fitoussi, raised the money to buy the land and build the Museum. Most of the funding was provided by Tom Shadyac, a movie director from California. The new museum opened in May 2007 and currently houses a 4 gallery museum as well as being the home to 27 children. The Cambodia Landmine Museum exists for 3 reasons

SHOOTING RANGE (ON THE WAY TO BANTEAY SREY TEMPLE)

Banteay Srei Palm Market

Pai Ri stirs boiling sap hunched over a large metallic pan that sits on a fire. Her little shop, near Siem Reap’s famous Banteay Srei temple, is brimming with customers, both local and foreign, taking a casual look at the many jars and bottles on the shelves and the other souvenirs for sale, which include traditional garments like kromas.

A palm tree farmer and a producer of palm sugar, a beloved local sugar product, Mr Ri has been in the business for over a decade, having established her base of operations in a so-called palm sugar village located half way between Siem Reap city and the ancient, pink sandstone temple of Banteay Srei. She confides that business is good, with tourists often interested in learning about the artisanal process involved in concocting the sweet Cambodia treat.

Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre

(BBC) is an interactive butterfly exhibit located 25 km north of Siem Reap, on the road to the Landmine Museum and Bantey Srey temple.

The exhibit consists of a netted tropical garden with thousands of free-flying butterflies, all of which are native species to Cambodia. The enclosure is South East Asia’s largest butterfly exhibit and provides residents and tourists with an interactive and visual environment to learn about butterflies and support local communities.

What is Butterfly Farming?

Butterfly farming is the breeding of pupae for sale to local butterfly exhibits or for export to zoos and live exhibitions overseas. Butterfly farms are situated in close proximity to areas of natural forest and provide an alternative, sustainable income to rural communities.

Butterfly farms have been established in many tropical countries worldwide – including the Philippines, Costa Rica, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
