Temple Chronicles: East Mebon

Rising three levels from the ground and crowned by five towers, East Mebon temple was built during the reign of King Rajendravarman on what was an artificial island in the middle of the now dry East Baray. The temple is dedicated to Shiva in honor of the King Rajendravarman II's parents.

A thousand years ago, the waters of the East Baray would have lapped around the temple's foundation but nowadays it has completely dried up.
