For me, this was a second tier (with Ankgor Wat, Ankgor Thom, Bantay Srie and Preah Khan as top-tier). The steps up to the top level are 12-inches each step. Great view of the surrounding country-side from the top. You could also look down to see the lower levels of the temple. The view from the top was the big... More

We caught this wat when there was nobody else there. Bonus. Be prepared to climb. If you have had hip replacement surgery or are unable to climb DOWN a steep staircase do not attempt this one.

Bit of a change in terms of architecture and materials used. But the steps were steep. The view on top is quite good though.

Not the most impressive temple but one of the few with red stones,making for nice pictures in the afternoon sun. To visit it along with Preah Khan.

After two days of temples, my guide took us here to watch the sunset on the second day. After climbing steep stairs, walking on uneven ground, and hordes of tourists, it was a treat to relax here. This place is not so popular so there are not many tourists to crowd your photographs. I really appreciate the grandeur of Angkor... More

Its a very good place to visit.The temples on the top are in dilapidated condition mostly now in ruins.Even the plants are grown on the towers and need most immediate renovation. SUNSET from here is most remarkable and Awe some, as vast green lands/fields are most scenic and the horizon just after sun set is really beautiful and scenic.MUST SEE.

One more of the many great temples of Angkor... From the top platform we did enjoy a great view over the forest. Pre Rup is one of the highest temples and has a characteristic Hindu style.

Another interesting dedication to Shiva. Unless one finds the stairs with hand rails it's a hard climb to the top to get the view and the sunset. Main problem is that it becomes so crowded that it's hard to enjoy.

Interesting architecture and not too crowded. If it was not located near the other more exotic temples it would be much more noticeable.
