Day trip to visit the remote, lonely temples of Preah Vihear temple and Koh Ker temples group the ancient cities of Khmer Empire abandoned in the jungle.
Temple of Preah Vihear is dedicated to Shiva, the first half of the 11th century AD. Nevertheless, its complex history can be traced to the 9th century, when the hermitage was founded and
Koh Ker is the modern name for an important city of the Khmer empire. In inscriptions the town is mentioned as Lingapura (city of lingams) or Chok Gargyar:70 (translated as city of glance, or as iron tree forest).(pp8–9)
Koh Ker under the reign of the kings Jayavarman IV and Harshavarman II was briefly the capital of the whole empire (928–944 AD). Jayavarman IV enforced an ambitious building program, follows a linear plan and not a concentric one like most of the temples of the Khmer kings of Jayavarman IV. Really impressive too are the shrines with Lingas.
