From Mane Hariharalaya: "Inspired by history and culture, Mane Hariharalaya – or "The home of gods Harihara" – set within 70,000 square meters surrounds with old trees, lakes and rice paddies – is a 5-star resort that beautifully captures the Khmer Traditional Houses while offering every modern luxury, echoing the ancient city of the Khmer Empire near the ruins of royal temples of Bakong, Preah Ko and Lolei (Latin ~ Hariharalaya).
Mane (pronounced as Mané) – a Cambodian mother of four who takes care of her family based on Khmer custom and culture, and who started the hotel as a legacy to her children.
The name "Hariharalaya" is derived from the name of Harihara, a Hindu deity prominent in pre-Angkorian Cambodia. The name "Harihara" in turn is a composite of "Hari" (The Hindu god Vishnu) and "Hara" (The Hindu god Shiva). Alaya is a sanskrit word meaning "basis," or "home," so Hariharalaya is home of gods Harihara or the home of the deity representing both Hari (Vishnu) and Hara (Shiva).
