I think this is a must see It was so different, going up the steps- they were narrow but worth the little climb. The views from the top was pretty amazing. The red lime stones used to built this was brilliant. Definitely worth the visit over Banteay Srei

This is a Hindu temple which is reddish in color as compared to the Grey color of Bayon and Angkor wat. It is a good introduction to the more majestic Banteay Srei temple located an hour outside Siem Reap. The activity to be done here is to climb the 3 storey structure and see the 360 degree views of the... More

Is popular for sunset, but like every place for sunset there are too many people (go to Angkor Wat instead), when you come here during the day, you are nearly alone.

Last stop on our first day doing the temples. We were a bit tired and over it a bit. You watch sunset from atop the temples looking at the jungle. Could be missed.

It is wonderfully restored and it offers a perfect alternative for viewing the sunset. I was there about 90 minutes before the sun set and chose a good spot at the topmost level. It is relatively empty of tourists most of the time, with the notable exception of sunset.

A Hindu temple, interesting as it is made up of several different materials- sandstone, brick and laterite which,like Angkor Wat change colour in different lights ( as sun rises and sets) It has a square pyramid layout which rises in several tiers of quite steep steps to the top from where you get a nice view of the temple lay...

It was very difficult to assess the quality of the temple as the number of people quite overwhelmed it. The sunset did nothing special as it is on top of some trees. Aspects of the temple did light up nicely .

A very simple temple. Flooded with tourists during sunset due to the high position. Similar structure to many temples of the similar period. The scale and size is quite amazing.

Not so much people during our visit. Very steep in going up! Small temple compared to the others so you spend like 30 min. of your tour.
