Lots of temples in this part of the world, but this one is a standout. The different colors and the details in the stone are very impressive. Probably one of the most well preserved of the ancient Cambodian temples. Very impressive.

Also known as the women's temple, it was said to have a pinkish appearance, but it didn't. :( I think it faded theough time...although its shade is a little bit diffrent fom the other temples' just. It was just small compared and you can wear anything unlike in Angkor Wat.

Definitly worth the drive out. If you started early on the day this is a nice break and a nice drive out to Banteay Srei. It's small and way different than all of the other temples. The carvings are amazing. Do not skip this one!

This "City of Women" temple is quite unique in its own way, very much different from the Angkor temples.

This is not to be missed if you have the time. The detail still in the carvings is amazing and it gives you a look at a temple older than Angkor Wat.

Banteay Srei is the north, 10-15 km, smaller of the temple groups but has the most artistic and preserved carvings in sandstone that I have ever seen. Be sure to visit as soon as the grounds are open. They are heavily guarded. If you are alone the guards may allow you to go just beyond the roped areas. It was... More

By far our favorite temple we saw! The drive alone to get to the temple is worth it - beautfiul driving through villages and rice fields truly seeing how the locals live. Since the temple is off the beaten path, it was not crowded at all. It is a Hindu temple and one of the earliest ones built - it... More

This temple was one of the highlights of our trip - and my favorite temple in the Siem Reap area. It is slightly farther afield, but well worth the visit. It is the only pink sandstone temple and was awe inspiring to visit. I must say that this is my favorite of the many temples we saw during this trip... More
