I've been to Wat Athvea a couple of times with a friend for water blessings by the monks there. They're easy going and we are able to go there in our own time. The ancient site of Wat Athvea rests quietly alongside the newer and active pagoda. It's a large site with many buildings and statues around and interesting to explore.

If you are on holiday in Siem Reap Angkor Cambodia please do not forget to visit this amazed Hindu temple. It is located just on the way to Chong Khneas floating village. It is a small temple but very unique carving and quiet, you would take this tour including water blessing ceremony with a monk there. Highly recommended!

We had an suspicious seat and standing in the mysterious temple area of Wat Athvea where a small attractive temple located along the way to Tonle Sap Lake, the south of the city center on the site of an ancient temple built during the 12th century by King SuryavarmanII. The temple has its own unique design and faces to the west, like Angkor Wat, believed to be dedicated to the God Vishnu.
Every tourist got immersed themselves in the treasures of splendid temple and got along with a troupe of sacred dancers, showing many traditional dances in graceful gestures that is the most iconic of Khmer Classical Dances, and sovoured the richness of Cambodian gastronomy for a magical dining experience - in the kingdom of smile, Siem Reap Angkor Wat.

With a tuk tuk you can reach this very silence temple on the way to the lake. I when here for a monk blessing ceremony which was a memory of life time. But the temple itself was not so interesting but still good to visit.

Wat Athvea temple is a remarkable Hindu temple located just a few minutes away from the center of Siem Reap. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II, the temple's design and its devata (sacred female images) showcase a distinctive style. Facing west, Wat Athvea shares similarities with the renowned Angkor Wat.

Visiting this temple offers a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the rich history and architecture of the Khmer Empire. The temple's intricate details and ancient charm are truly captivating.

After exploring the temple, you can extend your adventure by venturing into the nearby rice fields. This provides a serene and picturesque setting, allowing you to appreciate the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Overall, Wat Athvea temple is a must-visit for history and architecture enthusiasts. Its proximity to Siem Reap makes it easily accessible, and the combination of cultural exploration and natural beauty makes for a memorable experience.

This temple is definitely worth a visit. I am usually the only one there when I go, so it is a great opportunity to get away from the crowds of Angkor.
