Notes on the Geography of 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 a good illustration of Khmer corbelling. 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 this bridge.
