This is the place to go if you would like to avoid crowds watching the sunrise. There were only us and a few other people on this site to watch the sunrise. There is no temple here, however, the reflection of the sun in water is breathtaking. Make sure you bring along a torch and mosquito spray!

So not that spectacular these days ;) but the pool itself is still impressive. Spend time at Banteay Kdei just opposite instead.

This is an alternative place to go to be able to view the sunrise. There are no big temple buildings but the view of the sunrise is worth it. Only disappointing thing was there was an ongoing restoration in the area so there were several items obstructing an otherwise perfect sunrise view. Go here if you want to avoid big... More

This site is very small, undergoing reconstruction and at the moment quite unattractive. It might be pretty at sunrise or sunset. For anyone with un unlimited appetite for temples, it could be worth a visit with the nearby Banteay Kdei. However it was the least interesting of the many temples we visited, and along with the unpleasant experiences with the... More

Srah Srang really impressive place here in the vastness of the archaeological site of Angkor Wat. A short distance from the temples of Banteay Kdei and Pre Rup, it was really fun and relaxing to rest for a few minutes on the shores of this great artificial lake watching as life goes on around it, the children play into the...

It's under construction but the lake is very huge and big. Quite dirty but still it will amazed you. Just opposite of one of the main temple.

A large pool situated across the road from Banteay Kdei. Stone steps with Naga balustrades lead down to the water. It serves as a swimming pool for local children now.

We chose to avoid the crowds at Angkor Wat for sunrise and opted for Srah Srang. This was a great choice. It was not crowded, and we could sit on the platform next to the two sculptures. After we captured the sunrise, we walked across the road to another small temple for some great pictures.

Perhaps this place is spectacular during the sunrise and sunset, but I was disappointed during my visit in the mid-afternoon. There are many obstructions to a lovely view of the lake, and the area is not well-maintained. There were many pushy vendors that also helped to ruin the relaxing atmosphere that could be there. If you want to go just... More

Nice place to relax and enjoy the view of the pool. Near some temples, so easy to get to. One of the highlights.
