Pre Rup is a brick state temple topped with five towers, was built by King Rajendraman during the 10th century & dedicated to the Hindu god Siva. The temple architecture is pyramidal with elaborate stone carvings. Remember to spend sometime to climb to the top for beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

This temple isn't terribly busy - you basically climb to the top of it for the views then walk around the top. It was never completed so doesn't have the detail of many others. However, it's got good views over the archaeological park and it's nice to see a temple without being overly crowded. The stairs up at the front... More

A three tier brick state temple topped with five towers. Impressive views over the surrounding countryside if you climb to the top. There are galleries and sanctuaries on the second level. Not one of Angkor's best preserved sites but there are still some nice sculptures. As other reviewers have said this is best visited at dawn or sunset for some... More

After negotiating the huge crowds at Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom it was a delight to visit Pre Rup. As Pre Rup is a little out of the way, it was a pleasure as you could walk about and take good photos easily without bumping into people. The Hindu temple built around 962 is dedicated to Shiva and is made... More

Pre Rup is a large and tall brick temple. You can climb the stairs all the way to the top to get a nice view of the landscape and other nearby temples.

One of the few older brick temples in Angkor Archaeological Park. A bit falling down but being fixed up and well worth a look if you have the time. Lots of steps of the large kind but worth the walk to the top.

Pre Rup is another great Temple . The giant stone stairs are not for the faint hearted, but there are wooden stairs also . It's worth the climb in the backing sunshine. The elephants on the corners are a good photo opportunity, if you go to the back of the temple you can get some great shots without the crowds... More

This is the larger one of 2 near standing brick temples, (East Mebon being the other). More stairs to climb and while you can get a nice view over the tree tops, do not expect to see any of the other structures to be visible from here.

A nice temple. Not necessary but if you have the time it's worth it. No too far away from the other temples and provides a nice view of the surroundings.
