While Chau Sau Tevoda was one of the smallest temples we visited around Siem Reap, we found it to be one of the most beautiful. Only consisting of a few rooms, interconnected with short corridors, this was a much more intimate temple experience, as there were hardly any other tourists. The grounds were gorgeous, and the layout of the temple complex exuded a sense of harmony. Weird, but true. With so many tourists in the area it's rare to find such a place, but this is it, and we hope you have the same experience!
Zhousa Temple is a very cordial temple because it was built with the aid of our motherland. Beginning in 1998, after ten years of unremitting efforts, most of the collapsed temples were restored, repaired and reinforced, basically restoring the shape of the original buildings. The bright five-star red flag and Chinese characters can be seen on the sign at the entrance of the temple. There is also a wooden corridor behind the sign, and there are wall charts with text explanations, which record the introduction of the Chinese government’s aid construction, the restoration imagination of the Zhousa Temple, the comparison pictures before and after the restoration of the southern and northern Tibetan Scriptures and the central hall. There are precious pictures of our country’s leaders visiting the historical sites... The wasted time can cause everything to die, but the original intention of the world to protect cultural heritage has formed an unshakable vitality. The promotion and integration in the hot land of Angkor makes this piece of land endangered The ruins have returned to the public’s vision, tracing back to the most brilliant golden age of Khmer history.
Zhousa Temple is a flat-land temple. In front of the door, there is a big sign with the aid of the Chinese town government. Behind the sign is a corridor with many paintings. Chinese leaders are visiting Angkor Wat There are pictures of the construction aided by the Chinese government, as well as comparison pictures before and after restoration of the Zhousa Temple. Before entering the temple, I saw the national flag of our country, and I felt extremely cordial, and immediately developed an infinite favor with this temple. Although the scale of Zhousa Temple is not large, it has the same aerial worship path as Bafang Temple, connecting the east pagoda gate and the worship path together. In the temple, there are the Buddhist scripture pavilion in the north and south, and the central hall and the worship hall in the middle are connected. There are many reliefs of the goddess, the crown and hair accessories of the goddess, and the flower and leaf patterns on the door lintel are all very delicately carved.
