Travel to Cambodia (Angkor): Ta Prohm and Vicinity: Photo 6
Immediately downstream from the waterwheel there's an old bridge, known in modern Khmer as Spean Thma, "stone bridge." In Angkorian terms it's not so old: it was built in the 16th century of stones taken from abandoned temples. Still, it's the best illustration yet of the Khmer corbelling technique. Such bridges dam rivers as much as traverse them, and the Siem Riep River has adapted by changing course and finding a path just to the east of the bridge.
