AKP Phnom Penh--The APSARA National Authority is planning to launch two new visiting circuits: Chau Say Tevoda Temple and Thommanon Temple to raise the value of the ancient temples that tourists can visit from all angles of the temples’ main points, according to the authority’s news release.
Mr. You Chantha, Officer of the Department of Cultural Development, Museums, Heritage Norms, in charge of the working team organising the visiting circuits said that these circuits will be prepared in two phases. First, he pointed out, it is arranged at Chau Say Tevoda Temple to show the direction to the tourists to visit the entrance from the east, because, in the past, tourists who visit this temple often walk through the north entrance, so they do not visit all corners of the main points in this temple.
As for the second phase which is a long circuit, he continued, when the project to prepare the Angkor Thom's Victory Gate area to the Eastern baray dam is completed, the visiting circuit will be launched. The tourists can park their rides at the Victory Gate area and visit Thommanon Temple, continue to visit the nursery station of APSARA National Authority, see the water connection with the Siem Reap river, and the ancient bridge, and then continue to visit Chau Say Tevoda Temple from the east entrance.
These two visiting circuits are scheduled to launch soon, as the team is currently organising an information board describing the main points of the carvings and temples, signage, and tourism agents to facilitate the tourists.
Arranging visiting circuits will bring safety to the temple, and in addition will lead tourists to know and get a good experience from visiting ancient temples. In this regard, the APSARA National Authority encourages all tourists to abide by the instructions of the organised visiting circuit.
