Bridge.jpg Sites listed in this category are ancient bridges that were built during the Angkorean period. Most of the ancient bridges were built during the time of King Jayavarman VII along the many Angkorean highways that spidered out from the centre of Angkor Thom to the far reaches of the empire. Along these ancient highways King Jayavarman VII commissioned 121 Dharmasala's (rest houses) spaced about every 15km along with 102 Arogayasala's (Hospital chapels and reservoirs).
