Thommanon temple was built in the late 12th century, during the reign of King Suryavarman II, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Angkor Wat-style architecture. You find this temple just outside of the Victory Gate of Angkor Thom.

Thommanon is a small temple, with a central tower surrounded by several smaller structures and galleries. The temple is made of sandstone, and is decorated with intricate carvings and sculptures, many of which depict scenes from Hindu mythology.

Today, Thommanon is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is considered to be an important symbol of Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage and history. The temple is well-maintained and has undergone extensive restoration work, making it a popular destination for tourists and history buffs alike. Visitors to Thommanon can admire the intricate carvings, sculptures, and reliefs, and learn about the rich cultural heritage of Cambodia and the Angkor region.

In addition to the sutra hall, the central shrine, worship hall, and tower gate are arranged in a row from east to west.


There is a beautiful statue of Deva, but due to limited time, I was not able to see it closely.
