This incomplete temple is the first to be largely constructed of sandstone. Upon seeing it, the geometric quality of the uncarved stone blocks makes a big impression - it looks cubist, even! I was able to go to the second platform via a stable and manageable wooden staircase. From a distance I saw the main stairs, and I said "I... More

This temple is currently being restored, but it's still worth a quick visit while touring the various temples, if just for the view.

When i went it was under heavy restoration an there where cranes on all sides of the temple which made it almost impossible to get a nice photo of this place. One thing interesting about this temple if i must find one is the steep stairs you have to climb to get to the top. Just as one of the... More

This temple was under restoration and there isn't much to it, though there is a nice view to reward those who brave the steep stone steps all the way to the top. Don't go out of your way to visit, but it was a fun, quick stop.

Although it is currently under restoration, my husband still climbed to the top and was quite pleased with the view. The stairs are tall, narrow and very steep -- not for the less than nimble-footed! Even from below, it is quite an impressive structure and well worth a visit on your tenple rounds.

A difficult climb. Rewards don't balance out the effort to get there. You can only currently use 1 stair case, as 85% of the temple is closed for renovation. That coupled with it's defining feature being it is "plain". Only 2 carved stones on the entire massive temple. Not a highlight of Angkor

Our guide brought us to this temple to experience the steep steps and true enough it was tough! But it was worth the great view and the sense of achievement reaching the top and getting down to the bottom in 1 piece! You will need both your hands and feet when doing this climb. Protect your hands because the stones... More

Uncompleted temple with lack of decoration. Nonetheless you can enjoy stunning views from the top. Staircase is steep so you need extra care to reach the top, but it is well worth the effort.

Do wear comfortable shoes and bottoms to climb this temple. Steps are narrow and steep, with no hand rails. Not suitable for the unfit. View was great and it was an accomplishment to climb to the top (and to climb down). No ramp/lift.
