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.

This is an alternative option to watch the sunset when you're visiting Angkor Wat. The temple is quite high as you can see the sunset descending over the canopy of the trees surrounding the temples. It is a alternative to the very popular Bekeng Mountain where you can see the sunset behind Angkor Wat. It's a nice temple, large, only... More

Prae Roup (as you will more commonly see it spelled) and it's neighbor East Mebon are some of the older temples in the Angkor Complex. Uniquely more Hindu than Buddhist, these temples are quite different from other temples you will see. It is a temple mountain dedicated to the Hindu god, Shiva. The carvings you will find among the towers... More

We climbed up the South stairs and climbed down the East stairs. We were here early in the morning so it wasn't crowded yet and the sun's heat was still tolerable.
