While this temple is certainly incredible-- it was probably our least favorite out of Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm. A little smaller in scale and therefore feels a little more crowded (but lots of detailed carving). Beautiful-- but if you have to prioritize for time, drop it.

Beautiful temple with detailed artwork on the walls. It is a must visit sight and one should fit it in into the schedule of temples in Siem reap.

Of all the ancient temples/cities we visited, this one was my favorite. The color, the way the light plays off the carvings - everything about it was amazing. Make the most of your day and visit this temple and the Cambodia Land Mine Museum on the same day (they are on the same road - its about 40 minutes by... More

Love the structure and the colour. It was totally different from the rest of the temple. Prepare to climb.

The finest art among all temples in the park. You admire the beauty but also see the cruelty of human beings, even between brothers. The temple is small but tourists are non-stop. A bit pressure but you will be amazed with the high quality of the motif / bas relief. It is far from Siem Reap. So be prepared to... More

For sure the Angkor Wat is impressive complex and the crowning glory of Siem Reap but I personally like this small serene and intricately beautiful temple. Small but big in terms of beauty as magnified by its intricate architecture and design. Its almost the "queen of temples" in Siem Reap. I suggest a visit midafternoon to sunset as the sun... More

The temple was reddish and beautiful compared to the other temples in Siem Reap and the carvings were intricate and well executed. Truly a feminine place of worship, lotus pond with pink flowers add beauty to the already impressive place.

A stunning, quieter women's temple farther out from the town, this was another favourite. Also we got here early and enjoyed some peaceful meditative time before the crowds caught up with us!

It's a little out of the wat off the main Angkor complex but doesn't mean it's undiscovered but spend the time. Go early to beat the crowds
