The East Mebon rises up from the middle of a huge dry reservoir, the east Baray (7.5 km x 1.83 km) that was capable of holding 55 million cubic meters of water. The same architect who built Bat Chum built the Mebon. An inscription indicates that the divinity of this Temple was dedicated on Friday 28th January 953 at 11 AM. Generally well preserved, the first lintels of the sanctuaries constitute a beautiful attraction. Visitors should imagine that they are standing on an artificial island.
