Boeng Melea is a largest temple built in the middle of the 12th century following a layout similar to Angkor Wat. Located 60 kilometers northeast of the town of Siem Reap and enveloped in luxuriant jungle vegetation, it was recently re-opened to visitors. Built of blue sandstone, this powerful temple is for some parts in chaotic state with collapsed towers and galleries but for that it is very romantic.
