I really enjoyed this temple due to the towering main structure that can be accessed up some very steep stairways or from the one side with a wooden staircase. The views across the forrest are stunning from the top and there are examples of stucco-covered wall carvings that have decayed over time.

It is pre-1000 A.D built temple. The temple is beautiful, tall and with a steep climb. One can have a good distant view from the top. One should be careful as the stairs are slippery. Not advisable for older people.

The temple is not that big. It's pretty small. However, I love the view up the temple. Take note that the stairs up the temple can be a bit steep. Not advisable for people with leg problems or those who fear of heights.

This is a tall one and the climb is steep. Be prepared. It is beautiful and as I understand it, one of the earlier ones, pre 1000 A.D. It is one of a few made with bricks so it gives you an orange appearance. It is fantastic to climb atop and the restoration work is wonderful. We found it beautiful... More

Besides Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm, this temple is not a must-see, but a interesting place as well. Definitely worth spending some minutes there, though it's hard to climb up to the upper temple parts. Tip: since it's gonna be hot, use an umbrella to save yourself from the sun

What an awesome place to visit, loads of great things to see from height. Really steep steps to the top but when your there go round to the right side and look into the rainforest and you can see other temples peering out of the forest. Brilliant picture opportunities from height.

Pre Rup is another amazing site in Siem Reap. Pretty similar to Takeo but still special in its own way. The steps up are pretty steep but the view from above is worth all the effort. Be sure not to leave this one out.

It is different from the most other temples in the area. The long staircase leads to a high platform from where you get the aerial view of the large parts of the area.

Again, another great venue - just not one of the best in the area. As I write in other reviews, there are so many great places in this area, but you need to just do a few each day or else they all begin to blend together. Anywhere else in the world this would be a major attraction. Here it's... More

This was one of our favorites and we would have missed out on a lot if we didn't walk up the very steep steps. The view surrounding the area isn't the best but it gives you are a great vantage point to see how the temple is laid out.
