The Roulos Group

We were only on site for three days during this trip, which is a very short time when trying to get around and see some of the main sites, which Colin hadn’t seen before, see some new places, which I hadn’t seen before, and also get some photography done!

On the third day we went out to see the Roulos Group which are about 13 km south-east of Siem Reap. They were built when the capital of the Khmer lands was moved there around 2 centuries before the main sites at Angkor.

The first site we went to was at Lolei, but it was in such poor condition I didn’t take any photographs. We then traveled onto the two main sites in this group, Preah Ko and Bakong. Bakong itself is the first of the so-called mountain-temples of Angkor, and therefore played an important part in the development of Angkor iconography.
