The Roluos group is what has remained from the ancient Hariharalaya, which was the first significant capital during the Khmer Empire of the Angkorian era and consists of 3 temples.
Preah Ko: King Indravarman I, built this temple at the end of the 9th century, the temple was dedicated to his ancestors. The Bakong represents Mount Meru, the center of the universe and still houses a Buddhist monastery.

Lunch in a local restaurant. Angkor Thom was built by Jayavarman VII from the end of the 12th century and acquired the status of capital for about 300 years. This is why we encounter in this city some later monuments, but also some that are anterior to the work of the king.
