2. ADMIRE THE "LADY TEMPLE" IN CAMBODIA
The "Lady Temple" or the "Pink Temple" is the nickname of a very gorgeous construction in the massive Angkor Temple Complex of Cambodia - Banteay Srei. This is a fascinating attraction for women travellers to explore when coming to the land of Cambodia. So, what makes it different from other buildings in Angkor.
The temple was built in the 10th century named as "Tribhuvanamaheśvara", then changed to "Banteay Srei" (means "Citadel of Women" in English) owing to the fact that the temple was built of pink sandstone and the image of "Devata" - a demi goddess was found in many niches of the construction. Furthermore, almost every available surface of Banteay Srei was filled with sophisticated carving details of Khmer culture that survive until the present days.
Another reason you should choose to visit Banteay Srei temple is that you can easily reach to the Phnom Kulen National Park which is only 5 kilometers from the temple by road. Here, you can have an opportunity to encounter some spectacular sites such as the "River of a Thousand Lingas" with the 9th - century stone carvings on the bed of the river, a huge reclining Buddha image and wonderful waterfalls.
Furthermore, Cambodia is considered as a hidden gem of Southeast Asia featuring one of the world's biggest archaeological sites - Angkor Wat, stunning islands and beaches as well as rich cultural heritage. A trip to the land of Cambodia will definitely not let you down. Take a look at some best itineraries for your Cambodia tours now !
