Very close to Bantey Srei this temple dedicated to Shiva has been subject to mutilation by thieves seeking antiques. Elaborate architecture and carvings are hallmarks of this monument. A unique characteristic is the interior moat. All the buildings around the moat are on a raised base decorated with horizontal mouldings and statues.

If you decide to visit this temple, try to avoid China. I have been there at around 9am, their buses arrived at around 10am. Then it became extremely crowed.

Like all the rest of the complex this is an outstanding site. The carvings are rather different than others and thus well worth the visit.

This may be in far more ruins than some temples, the colour and the carvings are fantastic. It is further away from the other temples in Angkor Park but is well worth the travel in the tuk tuk.

Angkor Wat is beautiful but awfully crowded. This charming temple is built in the same style and is a lot quieter so you can really appreciate it. Don't miss the view from down the steps which would have been the original entrance

This site is farther away from Siem Reap but I think it well worth the effort. Less crowded and the carvings and stone color make this site remarkable.

Banteay Srei is a bit out of town and away from the main archaeological park. It is small and takes little time to go through compared to the larger temples. But it is singular in its apparent state of preservation of the stone carvings and is really an expression of high art and craftsmanship. Because the temple is small, you... More
