This temple is less visited, probably because it is a little far from the city centre and the Angkor complex. This temple has an amazing symmetry. It has pathways interspersed with tiny halls that contain the Shivalinga. These pathways lead to an open hall that has a path covering its four sides and the temple building in the middle. This...

This Temple is often overlooked as not as well known, but certainly worth a visit. You will be able to enjoy this place in relative peace as it is quite compared to the busy temples such as Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom

Banteay Samre is probably not as famous as other temples but still as beautiful as all. A little walk in and around the temple is worth it. Another one that is perfect for photographs to be taken after learning the history of the temple.

This is one of my favourite temples around the Angkor complex. It is usually relatively peaceful and has some very interesting carvings. Features include an extensive walkway that must have been truly impressive in its day. It is a lovely spot to relax and take it easy after looking at some of the more popular temples.

A temple from the middle period of the Khymer civilization influenced people think by the mountain people of the country (due to inscriptions).

This temple has a well kept beautiful window and a large amphitheatre like platform at the rear entrance. The fertility water container is unique in Siem Reap because it combines both male and female symbols into one structure. Other than these, its another beautiful temple in Siem Reap.

We could have been " temples out" with the inordinate amount of ways on our private tour but this one was slightly different- they all are. . it was a lot smaller and we spent a good time wandering about. Love Cambodia ...

Although its about 35klms north of Siem Reap its worth a visit. We hire a Tuk Tuk for half a day, left about 8am and it was a relaxed 60 min trip through the country side. The stone work is a distinctive red stone and the temple complex is compack and surrounded by a small water filled moat. We stopped... More

This is one of my fav temples in the Angkor region. I'm an archaeologist and I've worked in Angkor on and off for the last 20 years. I've seen the temples on the standard tourist route become too crowded. This temple, just off the standard route is quiet and it offers beatifull see-throughs. Worth going to.
