Spean Thma

1 min read

Date: Late 12th – early 13th century CE
Style: Post-Bayon

 

Spean Thma, or Spean Thmor (Khmer: ស្ពានថ្ម, the 'bridge of stone'), is one of the few Angkor Empire era bridges to have survived to the modern day.

It crosses the Siem Reap river on the ancient road leading from the Royal Palace to the East Baray, to the west of Ta Keo Temple.

It was probably built to replace a wooden predecessor, and then rebuilt after the Angkor period (around the 15th century CE), as it includes many reused sandstone blocks.
