i find this temple to be less crowded than the other big one like Bayon. this temple is quite elongated and offer a longer walk in the complex under the roof.

The first thing you can see the two headless 'Dvarapalas' guarding the west gopura. . One of them is holding a sword, but I don’t know what the other one was holding, because of the missing hands. Don’t worry, they let you in. Probably the most photographed bas-relief of this temple is a pretty devata with red paint. There are... More

This was the last temple we did on our grand tour bike ride and it was probably the most confusing in terms of layout. It was really easy to go from an area crawling with people to somewhere that was deserted. I liked the fact this temple was fairly low and loved the relief work and the moat.

I love Preah Khan. It's mostly quite busy, but, don't just follow the crowd through the temple as most people do. In one entrance and out the exit - that's boring and crowded. Walk around the perimeter of the temple itself and you'll find it's quite peaceful away from the maddening crowds. Plenty of interesting statues and carvings to photograph.Check... More

This temple is definitely a must-see one, along with Angkor Wat, Bayon--Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm. It has a unique two-storey building, that no-one seems to know what it was for (!), and it is generally less visited and quieter than the others, so it's good to spend a bit more time wandering around. It also has some she did trees... More

The Buddhist temple which located outside of angkor thom. A bit ruin but interesting place to explore especially in the evening.

To visit Preah Khan take a short walk through the forest and you will be welcomed by the stone warriors that will hold the bridge for you to cross. A very lovely complex surrounded by nature and not so crowded as Angkor Wat. Worth a visit of 2 hours. There are lots of statues, structures and details to be admired.... More

We visited this place early morning, so there was no crowd and just let the feeling sink in. It was simply beautiful to explore this temple without a guide.

The most iconic bridge carvings in all Angkor complex. Good shot, but don't invest too much time in here, Angkor is still waiting!
