Krol Ko

Krol Ko is a temple ruin located in Cambodia’s Siem Reap Province, just near the entrance to Neak Poan temple. It is believed to have been constructed in the late 12th or early 13th century, during the reign of King Jayavarman VII.

Krol Ko is notable for its unique architectural style. It is a departure from the traditional Angkorian style seen in other temple ruins in Cambodia. The temple features a central tower surrounded by smaller towers. These towers are connected by a series of bridges and walkways. The temple is also adorned with intricate carvings and sculptures, including images of Hindu deities and scenes from Hindu mythology.

In addition to its architectural and artistic significance, Krol Ko is also considered an important historical site, as it provides important insights into the religious and cultural practices of the Khmer empire during the reign of King Jayavarman VII.

Today, Krol Ko is a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors who are interested in exploring Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage and its stunning natural scenery. Visitors can tour the temple ruins and admire the intricate carvings and sculptures, and can also explore the surrounding area, which is home to lush forest and a variety of wildlife.

Krol Kor’s temple is badly damaged and not worth looking at. When I said to the tuk-tuk driver, “Krol Kor,” he gave me a suspicious look.

The only thing to see is a gable relief in Hindu mythology, where Lord Krishna lifts Mount Govardhana with one hand to protect his cowherds and cows from Indra, the thunder god.
