Our tuktuk driver, Sok Lin, of the Friendly Villa Boutique Hotel took us here for us to avoid the chaos of Phnom Bakheng. The sunset was really lovely and Pre Rup was not crowded. The stairs up the temple was a bit steep, though.

This is a gathering pace for the back packers and grey explorers - the temple itself is almost ruined but stately.

This was my favourite temple. We were there late in the afternoon and the crowds that besieged the main temples weren't around. This temple is older than the others by three or four hundred years and is built of clay bricks rather than sandstone. It is wonderful

This was my last temple that I visited. Well worth a stop if you have time. What it lacks in tunnels it makes up for in a spectacular set of stairs. The view at the top is very nice although don't expect to see too much from there. Another truly beautiful part of this site is the red brick colors.... More

I went to this temple with my group Cordonnoir Gourmet Club in July this year to witness the amazing sunset from this site. We got only few second of beautiful display then rain started, but at the same time we were so lucky to see rainbow over the temple because of the drizzle rain..!

Red stoned small temple , less crowd, steep stairs to climb with not much to support seemed daunting. However I made it to the top to be greeted by gorgeous panoramic views. Great for photographing , towers & doorways awesome with artistic sculpture . Definitely must see. Go in early in the day to avoid the heat & sun. We... More

When we visited Pre Rup around 3pm, we were the only people there which was great as the red sandstone makes for great pictures. Walking up the steps gives you a great view as this temple is higher and you can see further than many of the others. The steps were the traditional stone so were a bit higher and... More

We returned here to watch the sunset but sadly, it became cloudy and overcast. It is however, worth the climb to see and appreciate the view and a welcome breeze in the early evening. Definitely worth the climb, but take your time as steps are very uneven and few places to hold on to.

It is not one of the popular tourist temple destinations, but I am glad we visited this place. As it is one of the very few temples in Siem Reap made with harmony of "Red/Pink" laterite, bricks and sand stones. Another plus is the view from the upper terrace. A must see when you visit Pre Rup. It is along... More
