Although the temple is small, it deserves special attention from Chinese tourists because it is repaired by the Chinese team. Nine of the existing single buildings, except for the West Tower Gate, are badly damaged.
The temple of Zhou Sa and the temple of Thomason are very close. The temple of Thomason is a relatively complete one of the two and interesting in my opinion, but they are both great. The temple of Zhou Sa is a small and ornate temple (like the size of a church). It is not a popular attraction but worth a visit if you have the time.
This temple is somewhat similar to the nearby Tomay, which is reminiscent of the form of Angkor Temple. This place has a smaller building and a more scattered shape. This is a very special temple, just walk east from Bayon Temple.
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!
The Zhousa Temple was built during the reign of Suyevarman II in the early 12th century. The Tomanon Temple, which is 170 meters away from the north, was built during the same period, and its architectural layout and structure are exactly the same. But why these two groups of buildings were built is still unclear. It was only in the late 19th century that when the French military officer in Cambodia discovered this group of buildings, he learned from the local population that the temple was dedicated to ChauSay, so the French named it ChauSayTevoda. ).
Chau Say Tevoda Temple [Chau Say Tevoda Temple], there is information that it is dedicated to the God of Chau Say Tevoda, and there are also information that it may be built to commemorate Suryavarman I, or it may be a legacy of Suryavarman I. Related to certain traditional rituals. This is just a small temple, and I will finish seeing it soon, but it is of special significance to Chinese tourists. It is the first phase of the restoration project that the Chinese government assisted in Cambodia. When we came here for the first time in May 2008, Zhousa Shensa was mostly covered with scaffolding for maintenance. It happened to be Sunday and we did not see the Chinese team. This is the second visit, ten years later. The place has changed a lot and has been restored. There is also a pavilion on the left hand side, which exhibits the first and second phases of the restoration project that the Chinese team helped Cambodia to restore. image. The inside of the pavilion is quite cool and comfortable. It is good to look at the information pictures of the project restoration and take a break when you are tired from walking or feel the weather is too hot.
