As I have been visited to the paradise of traveler and it’s the world amazing place of Cambodia 

As I have been visited to the paradise of traveler and it’s the world amazing place of Cambodia before and there are so most beautifully natural in each place which made the adventure traveler are falling in love to the natural and history which mean to either all of the antique objects or all ancient temple which they are refection to the imagination to the travelling as conservation. After I have been visited to AngKor Wat, AngKor Thom …etc that still have got some suggestion to visit another beautiful place which is Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar too.

The Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar is the first palace in the list of Khom’s palace travelling list. The Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar that just open for travelling only about 2-3 years and it still be under the maintenance period so the why the entry ticket system still be not properly. But have some officers are stand at the front gate and tourist have to pay fee for 5 USD and have to sign on the visitation book as well.

At the Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar that you will meet the very youngest officer as they are just about the primary school children who will come to be the guide for you while you are walk around the Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar.

I thought this quite good chance for them that could earn some pocket money while end of semester. During I’m walking around that they told me that the Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar have age about 800 years old already and the Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar has the boundary larger than 2 times of Angkor Wat but a bit smaller than Angkor Thom. The boundary dimension is about 2 x 2.5 Kilometers  

The entry gate is at the east and have small canal to encircle of the palace and the architecture ancient art is Ban Yon type. Then I have walked through the right hand side which will see the doctrine hut or the Ban Fai (Fire House) which this boy told me about the legend of this name. It’s because they have to setup the small fire for traveler can see the route or for those traveler to do overnight here. Inside of the Fire Hose is for keep the statue of Pra Pho Thi Sat ArVa Lo Ki Te Soun too.

This boy have bring me at the front of the maintenance area which is the TheKrut stop the Nakara bridge which quite very beautiful but it’s look too new and there are many of large bricks which prepared for replace the broken one in the Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar as it’s like the Jigsaw puzzle game. Then walk through another gate into the palace then I have seen other mound of large bricks, so now I could  guess which this maintenance would be finished.

But the prominent point of Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar that is the sculpture of Buddha which it still be the perfect piece and the other highlight of Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar is the sculpture at behind of this palace with it’s the sculpture of Pra Pho Thi Sat ArVa Lo Ki Te Soun which have 32 hands and actually there are 4 of sculptures but because they were stolen then currently are only 2 pieces and its wall been lose about 5 meters.

Even if it’s not the perfectly beautiful but it’s not make the faith of Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar from all traveler is going down but they still are always come to see this palace Angkor Ban Thay Cha Mar.
