Thommanon is a "minor " temple, so if you are in a hurry or here just for one day, you can skip this temple. The area is not very big and be covered in less than an hour during which you will be able to admire wonderful Apsara carvings very well conserved.

Thommanon is one of a pair of Hindu temples built during the reign of Suryavarman II at Angkor, Cambodia. This small and elegant temple is located east of the Gate of Victory of Angkor Thom and north of Chau Say Tevoda.

Chau Say Tevoda and Thommanon are temples on either side of the main road. Thommanon temple is given as dedicated to Hindu prime Gods Shiva and Vishnu. Surprising part is that temple hall entrances are very high - with ground level raising all over the world that I have seen - still one need to climb tall stairs to reach the altar. Temple layout and structure reminds me of a temple in Porur Ramanathaeaswarar Temple in South India (has undergone modification in recent years) - original one being almost 1000 year old. Peaceful place - could spend some time with temples just as ruins or with no Moolavar now.

This temple is one of a pair. The other Chau Say Tevoda and this temple is in better condition.

It has some upper and lower pediments on both the West and East gates and the library that are worth taking some time to see.

The highlight is the central sanctuary which has two fabulous devatas, considered to be among the best in Angkor and inside is an absolutely beautiful lintel which can be difficult to find and see. Take some time to find it. There are also a couple of other lintels worth looking at but when you spot Vishnu standing on Garuda you have found it.
