Temple enthusiasts might be interested to know that it is possible to visit two temples nestled right on the Cambodian-Thai border. Ta Moan and Ta Krabey are both small, but well-preserved temples that were built during the reign of King Jayavarmin VII (builder of Banteay Chhmar). The temples are hidden in the mountains and there is an abundance of bird life – easier to hear than see:)Ta Krabey definitely has an “Indiana Jones” feel to it.
Sometimes, it is even possible to cross the Thai border and visit the local market near the Ta Moan Temple. You can visit both temples in a half-day trip. If you are interested in this tour, please ask a CBT tour guide. Travel can be arranged by taxi or moto, roads and weather permitting.
