Most popular and memorable temple in the circuit, thanks to the Tomb Raider movie. It is good to see restoration work being carried out now on this site before the temple gets completely taken over by stangler figs. Parts of the temple have been cordoned off for this. Dramatic photo ops here with strangler figs taking over some of the... More

Recommend to visit earlier during the day if you're spending more days in Siem Reap. Otherwise, I would recommend to priority to visit Angkor Wat & Bayon first. Most of the beautiful site for pictures are set up with wooden planks & wooden railings for picture taking that doesn't look good on pictures.. Washroom located only outside the temple, out... More

Trees growing within temple; PLEASE do not cut the trees away (as planned). I love how the jungle reclaimed the temple. Definitely worth a visit while in Siem Reap.

Great place to visit with the kids! It was extremely crowded at times though and I would suggest trying to go at lunch time (even though its hot!) as it seemed a little less crowded when a lot of the groups were at lunch.

One will have THE MOST AUTHENTIC experience of the temple adventure here! The giant trees we see in the Tomb Raider movie are here. Make sure you coordinate with your tuktuk driver on where he will be waiting for you because we got lost twice while looking for our tuktuk driver. They have north, south, east and west exits so...

Went here as part of our Angkor Wat sunrise tour. It was awesome with the trees growing out of the side of the temple and would definitely recommend stopping despite the heat and humidity.

My favourite of all the temples. Lacking the grandeur of Angkor Wat, but with the added attraction of witnessing nature and architecture intertwine. Truly awe-inspiring - and not just for Angelina Jolie fans! :)

beautiful temple but not much to see. most of it is almost in ruins as the trees overgrow in the temple ground itself. but it has a special touch to it and its where lara croft was taken so u can visit it. but the time i visited it was under restoration so i couldnt explore much.

This temple is famous thanks to a certain movie which was filmed here but the true reason why it is famous is because of the wonderfully wild trees which roots are holding together some of the murals and whose roots snake and grow mercilessly across the temple. Truly magical and definitely worth visiting.

The nature is hugging one of the ancient building, looks so ancient and beautiful. Also you can appreciate a tiny sculpture of a dinosaur, you have to see it. I hope you have a good tour guide and show it to you.
