Compared with Angkor temple, Barong temple, Tabu cage, Saint Sword temple and Queen's Palace, these well-known temples are seldom known. Although it is on the way to the Queen's Palace, most people will not include it in the itinerary, perhaps because the Bantisema Temple is really too "low-key" to introduce. However, all this does not affect the charm of Bantisema Temple. On the contrary, because it does not belong to the popular temples, less visitors come to visit, Bantisema Temple gives us too much amazing. In this respect, you can see the style of Angkor Architecture - first, cut and polished blocks of quartered stones stacked according to geometric figures, then the craftsmen began to cut and carve on the stones, and finally hollowed out the stones. There was no adhesive between the stones and the stones, and they were completely pressed and frictioned by natural gravity. The technical level of 500 years ago could actually put these lights on. Bare, cold, and so large a number of stone carving exquisite, really shocking.
The temple was built in the mid-12th century and belongs to Hindu style. It was built during Suyabama II. Its broad and flat style distinguishes it from other Angkor Wat buildings. Archaeologists have carried out large-scale restoration of Bantisema Temple in this century. Bantisema Temple and other buildings in Angkor Wat were almost built at the same time. The style of temples and pagodas is very similar to that of the pagodas in Angkor Wat, especially to the Khmer Temple in Thailand. Most of the sculptures are well preserved. The Bantisema Temple and the Great Circle are a little farther away, closer to the southernmost corner of East Balai Lake. On his return journey to Siem Reap, Gaubsbasbin passed the Bantisema Monastery. A small unknown temple, near evening, only three of us, sitting on the steps, quietly feel everything quiet around, quietly gazing at the beautiful sculptures around. I really like it here.
There are few visitors to Bantisema Temple, and there is a little Pavilion rhythm [snickering] although he does not have the magnificence of the Queen's Palace nor the grandeur of Angkor Temple, he just feels the unique flavor here. The Temple layout is complete and regular, like a big altar city, the staggered steps have a sense of hierarchy. The temple is the favorite place when it visits two days ago, and probably the quiet and noiseless crowd is the most important. Reason [Smile]
On the way from Queen's Palace to Bige Temple, I spent half an hour looking at Bantisema Temple. The monastery is surrounded by circular ditches and high walls, like a miniature Angkor Monastery, more primitive. In the process of maintenance, it has basically restored its original state. Fewer tourists, more vicissitudes under the sunset. The photographic effect is good. It can be used as a background for artistic photography.
Bantisema Temple and the Queen's Palace are near, both in the suburbs. This is a relatively well-preserved Temple group in Angkor. Compared with the temples around Tongwang City, there are more tourists here. Unlike other temples, the moat here is in the temple, which is now dry and has the shape of boats on both sides. From time to time, small monkeys crawled up and down the stairs.
Bantisema Temple was built in the early twelfth century under the chairmanship of Sulliyah Bama II. The temple is small but compact and well preserved, with fewer visitors being very quiet monuments. Personally, I think it's no less than Queen's Palace. The reliefs on the steeple-shaped walls of the temple are also amazing and worth seeing.
The best preserved and clean Bantisema Temple has few tourists and a quiet environment. The temple's pattern and sculpture are well preserved and worth visiting. Feel the oldest building complex, the perfect combination of red brick and stone carving, and feel the vitality again.
The exquisite sculpture and corridor of Bantisema Temple; the mystery and tranquility of the classic Khmer smile; the roots of trees enough to crush stones; the high walls of the corridor and the doors of the sky that shook... Each of them has its own characteristics, all of them are treasures of human architectural sculpture art, and the Khmer civilization left behind is secret and great.
Bantisema Temple, built in the early 12th century during the period of Suliyabama II, is a monastery comparable to the Queen's Palace. If you have time, you should definitely visit it. Its walls are very high, giving a heavy feeling, the internal structure is very exquisite, and many carvings on the walls are well preserved. There are not many tourists, so you can taste them carefully.
