The River of Thousand Lingas..

 

Kbal Spean Angkor Cambodia, known as "the river of thousandLingas" consists of sculptures carved into the rock of the river bed over a length of 200 meters between a bridge and a waterfall. These sculptures have the role to sanctify the water of the river, dating from the eleventh to the thirteenth century. After visiting the beautiful carvings of Banteay Srei, there was first a dirt road about ten km, and then about 40 minutes walk into the jungle by a small footpath. Several hundred "lingas" (representation of sex of the god Shiva in Hinduism) are sculptured by important groups in the river with spaces sculptured by Hanuman (monkey god), and Rama Lakshmi and Vishnu meditating whilelying in a cosmic ocean. Water KobalSpien will join Siem Reap and Puokrivers and through Angkor Wat.
 You have to walk for 40 minutes by a marked path through the jungle (no danger) to access the site Kbal Spean. Along the way, surprising trees before arriving at the waterfall
