Really felt like discovering a lost temple. Go visit it and don't tell the hordes of tourists at other sites.

Unlike Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Phrom, Preah Khan isn't as packed filled with tourists, and isn't disfigured with all the extensive restoration works started in the more well known sites. I was in Angkor in 2005, and Preah Khan feels like what it was like 10 years ago, for Ta Phrom untouched. Preah Khan will feel like you are... More

Compare to other temple, it is quieter as it is on the grand tour. Want to see more detail the beauty of the ancient ruins, Preah Khan is one of the best!

Definitely worth spending a bit of time here and exploring. It's pretty big and complex and isn't descended upon by the hordes.

Expect to walk through the gates from east to west. Most of Preah Khan's parts are already in a rubble, so you really need to becareful. What I love the most is the entrance, as it has some trees that gives you refuge from the sun. As you walk along the path, I left with the sense of missing the... More

Since I wake up early, I deeply enjoyed my visit to Preah Khan. Carvings are very impressive, the temple itself is quite huge and the surrounding is quite lovely. Definitely worth a visit.

There are many temples to see (we saw about 17) but this one was our first to fully experience. Its a large temple complex in a jungle with amazing path to the temple with a bridge to the amazing wall. Inside the stone wall gate is a temple with great carvings, rooms, halls etc. Truely amazing. Our biggest mistake we... More

Not as crowded as the others but this place is worth a visit. Once there, you would feel like you're back in time when the place was first discovered (I was there late one afternoon and not so many people there though). Personally I like this one better than others.

I have done the grand tour and this temple was part of it. I like the tranquility of this place. It has less tourist and you can definitely enjoy walking around a bit more. Although it may not be as big as the other temples in the Angkor complex but it's beauty can be much more appreciated.

Although this is a much smaller site than the other more well known temples in the area it is equally as impressive! Very compact but beautiful.
