If visiting the Ta Prohm- of course you do, Indiana Jones and Angelina Jolie did too! So, Srah Sang is related to Ta Prohm. The King Yayavarman used to bath here with his wives, when staying in Ta Prohm. The lake is actually a huge pooll. If you follow up the shores, you'll finfd the remains of the pool.

Visited in the wet season and it was a much nicer view. This time in dry season, we dropped by just to take a look after visiting Banteay Kdei. Still, take a few minutes to have a look if you are visiting Banteay Kdei, it's just a short walk to the opposite side of the road.

Everywhere you walk in the Angkor temples, you are walking in the footsteps of the citizens of the Khmer Empire. I try to always take a moment to reflect on what every temple in the Angkor Park must have been like in those days. At Srah Srang I try to imageine what it must have been like for the Kings... More

I went to watch the sunset at Srah Srang and while I could see it being a perfect place to do so if there's water in the lake, it's a bit lackluster without any water. Still, I actually enjoyed seeing the Cambodian children playing soccer in the middle. It was a nice reminder that Angkor Wat isn't just for tourists.

After visiting Banteay Kdei you can literally cross the road and walk up a staircase to see the giant kings swimming pool. Unluckily for us we visited during the height of the dry season and the water level was very low. I would have liked to have seen the pool filled with water as apparently the sunsets and sunrises are... More

Nice place to settle down by the water to collect your thoughts after a days exploration. the waterfront is also an ideal place for good photography. you could be met with vendors offering you drinks.

During my visit, the western area with two statues was surrounded by scaffolding and the water level was quite low, so the impression was a bit spoiled. But I beleive that it is twice that good after rich rains and during sunrise/sunset.

This was basically a giant pool for the Emperor. Locals who live nearby bathe and play here now along with the cattle. Cattle are still considered holy creatures by some of the locals. It's nothing special but a nice spot to relax. There are some nearby food stalls where you can get a bite and look out on the water.

The Royal Bath. On our way to Pre Rup from Prasat Kravan we passed by this 'baray'. Must be good for sunrise view if you're looking for a less crowded spot.
