Sprawling jungle temple covering over one square kilometer. The temple is largely overrun by vergetation and very lightly touristed, giving it an adventurous, 'lost temple feel. Photographers, trees growing from the broken towers and galleries offer some of the best tree in temple shots aside from Ta Prohm. Constructed in a distinctly Angkor Wat Style under the same king that built Angkor Wat, Beng Melea preceded and may have served as a prototype of sorts for Angkor Wat.
