The West Mebon (Khmer: មេបុណ្យខាងលិច, Mébŏn Khang Lĭch, pronounced [meːbon kʰaːŋ lɨc]) is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, located in the center of the West Baray, the largest reservoir of the Angkor area. The temple's date of construction is not known, but evidence suggests the 11th Century during the reign of King Suryavarman I and Udayadityavarman II.: 96, 103 : 371 

In the dry season today, it is reachable by land. In rainy season, the waters of the 7,800-meter-long baray rise and the temple, located on a site higher than the baray's floor, becomes an island.
