Sura Srang overview

Sura Srang is a large rectangular reservoir in the ancient city of Angkor, Cambodia. The reservoir was built in the late 12th century, during the reign of King Jayavarman VII, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Angkor-style engineering.

Sura Srang is a large body of water surrounded by stone embankments and a causeway. The causeway is decorated with elaborate carvings and sculptures, many of which depict scenes from Hindu mythology. The embankments are adorned with sculptures of mythical creatures, including lions, elephants, and garudas.

The purpose of Sura Srang was to store water for use during the dry season, and it was an important source of water for the city of Angkor. Today, the reservoir is a popular destination for tourists visiting the Angkor region, and is considered to be an important example of ancient Khmer engineering and architecture. The reservoir is part of the larger temple complex of Angkor Thom, and is often visited in conjunction with other temples in the area.

Although it is a magnificent pond surrounded by sandstone, there are few sculptures and there is not much to see.

By the way, I went to one of the nearby restaurants, but the food was sloppy and slow to come out, so I wouldn't recommend it. If there are a lot of tourists, there is a high possibility that they pay a commission to the tour guides to attract customers, and if there are too many people, they just say "guests are brought".
