Well worth seeing this temple, it is underrated, and free from the crowds of Bayon etc. This is on the great circuit tour road, north of Angkor Thom.

Preah Khan temple was built by King Jayavarman VII in late 12th Century. Khmer people will call this temple as Royal Sword. It was Buddhist temple till King Jayavarman VII and slowly convert to Hindu monument. The entrance of this temple is also unique. The door is design from big to small.

Very underrated temple that is better than Ta Phrom in my opinion. It has interesting architecture. The same giant banyan roots. It also has many interesting architecture and religious quirks to its design that is not reflected in the temples in the angkor radius. Not to mention it is very historically significant in many ways to the khmer empire. There... More

Another great place to visit. Best either in the early morning or late afternoon. The restoration here is less evident and the ruins are preserved pretty much as the were found. All that has been changed is the removal of the forest overgrowth that hid it from view.

A huge sprawling temple with overgrown trees. A former university for learning Buddhism. Not to be missed and sometimes not crowded as the others.

I believe this temple is unique in that it has a smaller building inside built with Romanesque type columns rather than the square columns used throughout and has a second floor though no visible way to get up to it. Our guide was unsure of reasoning.

Time stood still! Love the shady walk to this manageable size site. No renovation. It is just as it is. Would recommend this place to escape the majority of the tourists!
