    We need some short walk just to reach into Neak Pean temple which was built in late of 12th Century in Siem Reap Travel.

    Neak Pean was one of the unique island temple, and it was full with water during the raining season 😀

    One of the unique design about Neak Pean was the hydraulic engineering with Buddhist Symbolism.

    The ancient believes that Neak Pean has the miraculous healing power from the source of four great rivers issued through the mouth of ox, lion, elephant and horse 🙂

    If you walk circling around the Neak Pean, you will find out that four small chapels link to the main pond 😀

    Neak Pean was believed to be a hospital in ancient time and sick people will come here to get medical treatment.
