This is not close to the main temples, is on a smaller scale but is certainly worth a visit. It was much quieter so allowed you explore in relative peace! About an hour away by tuk tuk, but this gives you a chance to see the country away from the main tourist area.

The temple was clothed with dark pink color under sunshine and the carvings were so unique and exquisite. It's a mystery while this temple was done so differently than all the other ones. But anyway, a very different one and worth stopping by.

It needs an hour tuc-tuc drive each way to reach this beautiful temple, but it worths all the effort. A small but fine temple.

Went for sunrise and only had to share the site with one other couple. Beautiful carvings and rock colours. Small temple but still worth visiting. Included in usual temple pass.

If it had been empty this would likely have been the favorite temple in Angkor, but the crowds made it more like the metro nearing rush hour. this temple is relatively small and over attended. That makes it difficult to actually enjoy the magnificent carvings. While it is organized well and the flow is controlled to go in one direction,... More

We spent 4 days in Siem Reap and saw just about every temple (well at least the ones on the map). Rather than reviewing all of them, I decided to just review my top 3, and Banteay Srei was one of them. The colors of this temple were really pretty and contrasted perfectly! This one is being renovated so it... More

Firstly, our guide told us that most of the temple has been restored however there are huge parts of it that are still broken down. The carvings are intricate and the pink stone is different however for the price to drive out with a car to see this I did not think that it was worth it. There were bus... More

The best little temple we have visited. It is better to go early in the morning - maybe after a sunrise trip- to avoid the crowd and fully appreciate the intricate details of the place.

After visiting the large monumental architecture of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, going to this "ladies" temple miniature scale, is by no means a let down. Indeed, the intricate carving of the temples, arches, monkeys etc is more than just worth a visit, it should be a destination unto itself. Don't miss this charming place, get there early so you...

This so called 'ladies temple' stands out for the very intricate stone carving works. The door frames are magnificent. There are a bunch of lady statues, one allegedly the 'Mona Lisa' of the east (could not find it). You can't get to close to the center, as it is cordoned off.
