Chhim Roman Temple
Credit: VFXArabia /
Located on a hill near the town of Chhîm, the small Roman temple of Chhîme is a tetrastyle temple, meaning it has four columns on its façade. The façade also features a bas-relief dedicated to Helios, the Sun God in Greek and Roman mythology. Facing east, it has a fairly small porch.

The temple was restored in the 1970s. It was part of a village whose origins date back to the Bronze Age, which has also been the subject of significant archaeological excavations.
