Chajiao Temple is a pagoda-like temple with a diamond throne in Angkor Monument, Cambodia. It was originally a funeral temple built by King Vayabama V for himself. But during his reign, many temples were not completed. It is also a temple that China has participated in the restoration, which is very Chinese, because there are steel frames that are exposed and supported everywhere.
Chajiao Temple is a flat structure of the main hall of five pagodas with auxiliary halls in four directions. Unlike pyramid-shaped temples, it has built a corridor around it. The monastery was built by King Haoyebama V at the beginning of the 11th century, but because of the sudden death of the king, the stone fortification was left behind. The name of Chajiao Temple is the ancient Crystal meaning that it is said to have been built as a touchstone for the construction of Angkor Temple. Particularly envious of those who stand on the main hall to see the scenery, because fear of heights can only be seen from far below, the staircase of Chajiao Temple is short and high, the slope is almost vertical to the ground, only to walk a few steps feel ready to fall, can only give up.
Here is China's assistance in repairing. When we entered, some people checked our clothes. We wore shorts. We couldn't help but buy an Alibaba trousers in the opposite shop of the temple. Although it was a scenic spot, the price was fair and there was no arbitrary price. The temple is small, but it has to climb high steps and steep. We climb up and down with our hands and feet. But when we reach the top of the temple, the scenery is really good.

And that step is really steep, close to 90 degrees of perspective, holding the hot stone steps, really scary. Looking up and down, the scenery is really good. Without the real scenery, it is impossible to appreciate the steepness of the steps. Coming down to see a construction plate, the Chajiao Temple is repaired with the assistance of the Chinese government. It is full of pride.

TaKeo Temple (Ta Keo translated as Ta Gao Temple) is located in the east of Angkor City and northwest of Ta Bu Mun Temple. It is a diamond throne Pagoda Temple in Angkor. The Chajiao Temple was originally built for itself at the age of 17 by Emperor Hanyebama V. However, during the construction process, the temple was struck by lightning, which was definitely an unknown evil omen under the belief system of the God King at that time. Although the priests later carried out relevant religious ceremonies to dispel the devil, the construction of the Chajiao Temple was eventually abandoned halfway and the decoration process was completed. It stopped working at that time. If completed, Chajiao Temple is undoubtedly the most beautiful and powerful temple in Angkor Grottoes. Because Chajiao Temple is the first temple built entirely from sandstone.
Chajiao Temple (Tagao Temple) is the second temple that China has helped to restore Cambodia. Most of this temple is also the shape of Xumi Mountain. It is not easy to repair the periphery. I've seen some ruins that have not been repaired. It's like a pile of stones without any rules. In the hot sun, pheasant crowns are blooming in the cracks of the stones. Climbing such a narrow and steep Xumi Mountain is a test of piety.
Tea Jiao Temple/Tagao Temple is now being restored by China in aid of maintenance. The Chajiao Temple was built around 1000 A.D. by Jayavarman V, Kingdom of Zhenla. The temple does not seem to have been completed, because all the stones piled up are still in the rough original appearance, and there is no decoration on it. Archaeologists have discussed the reasons why it did not continue to be completed. Some people think that it was wrong to choose too hard stones to carve on them, so it retained its original state; another view is that it was in the construction process. After being struck by lightning, the dynasty considered it an ominous omen and stopped building. Anyway, the most important significance of this temple in archaeology is that it proves that the size of the ancient city of Angkor was built in the way of "stacking first, carving later".
Chajiao Temple, the Diamond Throne Pagoda-like temple, is the first all-sandstone building in Khmer, but it has not been completed, so it is also the only temple in Angkor with almost no sculpture. It is said that the monastery was struck by thunder when it was built. The king thought that it was a God who warned him that it would be unlucky to continue to build the monastery. So although these temples have been built, they have not yet been carved.
