Baksei-Chamkrong

Baksei-Chamkrong is the name of a small beautiful temple, which has 3 levels. It was built in the early 10th century after Bakheng temple was finished. In the area of this temple, there are some small brick temples that are covered by the trees as well. At first, there were not any inscriptions until King Rajendravarman brought the capital from Koh Ker to Angkor again in 948 AC; Sanskrit lyrics were written on the doorway, as we see today. The meaning of that inscription was very interesting because it’s about a legend of Khmer ancestors. In the legend was told that Khmer was originally from a sage named "Kampu" who was amazingly born by his own (no parents). Then, he was married with a beautiful angel called "Me Ru", so they created a family and so on (It’s called Khmer people). It’s noted that Baksei-Chamkrong was built in the pre-history site of the Bronze Age.
