Description

It is unusual to see such an intact stupa in the center of an Angkor Temple. Also, what is unique about this stupa is the way the ceiling of the temple has opened over time. If you position yourself just right, the cracks in the ceiling will appear as a flickering flame emitting from the top of the stupa. Check it out from different directions!

Short Walk: After completing the loop around the temple, walk directly through the center of the temple and you'll walk right into it. It is the only intact stupa. Look up at the ceiling and find a good position. Looking at the stupa from the east side it will look like two flickers and looking at it from the south will appear as one.
