There is no comparing one temple to another, but Banteay Srei will definitely have to be my personal favorite. The red stone, the intricate stone carvings all add to give a feeling of extreme elegance. While it is a bit far out, the drive is worth it. Plus, you can stop at the Landmine museum en route.

Bantaey Srei is one temple a bit far from the main temples. But the carvings of the small temple were really intricate and the color of the rocks were beautiful. So sad that we were not able to fully look around because of the heavy rains.

you will be awed and surprised how a temple away from angkor is built. the structures and art carvings of banteay srei were more detailed as compared to the other larger angkor temples.

You might not think the slog out to Banteay Srei is worth it, especially if you haven't got time to spare. It is. We used the afternoon of our second day to go here and to Banteay Samre. Quite a lot of the temples are similar to each other but this is set apart from those by the intricacies of... More

This is a temple for women built by the King, the construction of this temple was just amazing by using local material known as laterite

The level of detail in the Banteay Srei carvings is unbelievable. It's a little out of the way, being almost 2 hours from SR town by tuktuk but definitely worth a visit. There is a bit of a tourist welcome centre at the entrance of the site but it's manned by uninterested staff so it would be better to get... More

An hour out of town this trip must be done in a car or 4x4. This temple is on one level only. Overgrown until recently. The pink colour of sandstone is a distinction.

This temple has the most refined, delicate carvings in the area. At times it looks like lace and embroidery on stone. The peculiar pink tones of the stone is an additional plus. Not as big or imposing as the other temples, it is nevertheless the most beautiful.
