It was one of the best temples in the Angkor Complex to avoid the crowd of tourists. The architecture of the temple is also much more intact and seems to be well maintained than others. The carvings are much more pronounced and deep compared to other temples. The mixture of the pink sandstone and lava rocks that compose the temple... More

We just did the small circle , and it's enough to appreciate the beauty of these buildings . The guide helped understand the building and the special interest , allow yourself time to really see the temples and don't rush

I loved Banteay Sre. There were very few people there and I wandered around aimlessly, with no other tourist to distract me. I felt like I had slipped back in time and was the first person to discover this place. I even had a scare as three or four cows wandered through the brush at the back of the temple,... More

This temple is a little bit away from the main temples so isn't quite as crowded as most even though it's only a few minutes' further out. There are lots of details still clear in the friezes and it's worth taking your time. There are also nagas everywhere. There were no bus groups in the time I was there and... More

it's a pity that we didn't have access to the main tower for a close look at the delicate carvings on the wall. The place is so so so beautiful soaked in morning sunshine!

Banteay Samre is off the beaten path but well worth the time and effort. It is by far the easiest temple to navigate as much of it is flat compared to the other temples. The best part is that it was virtually empty when we visited and it was easy to take great photos. Because it is out of the... More

This is the farthest eastern temple. I wanted to see these temple because they used a special red sandstone to build it; making the color of the temple unique.

This is a bit out of the park but not far and worth a look. The temple has been some what restored and gives a good view of temples in this period. Small and a bit quieter then some of the others which was a good thing.

A good temple with excellent bas reliefs and much quieter. This temple is within easy reach of Siem Reap and can be visited en route to Banteay Serai.
