Another awesome place to visit - it's just not one of the biggies here. It's best when you don't do lots of temples in one day - otherwise they just all blend together. So definitely worth seeing, just not one of the best.

Preah Khan was one of my favorite of all the temples we visited on our two-day tour of the area. Covered in deep jungle and a photographer's dream to visit here. Some incredible tree growth here as well, to include a lot of ruins. If you're making a list and not sure which temples to include, I'd recommend including Preah... More

This is probably my favourite temple, lovely shade and the jungle atmosphere make this spot a real winner.

I might not be the best reviewer of all the temples because they all were so wonderful and have different feels. This one had some of the best tree growth through the ruins. It also has a unique two story building with columns but no access to the second floor.

I thought that all temples would be the same, little did I know. The Sacred Sword is the meaning of this temple. The walk to this temple has shade from the trees along the way. Very narrow and low corridors, lots of fallen ruins and trees growing through the temple reaching up and out to the sky.

In the middle of Preah Khan is a place to worship. It includes a stupa which is topped by sunlight in the shape of a flame. There is also a really cool echo room that doesn't work when you stomp your feet but does if you pound your chest (just make sure you do it 3 times for luck).

This was one of my favorite sites. Do not miss the somewhat hidden images of the King's two wives (sisters). They are off the beaten path and one is hidden by collapsing stone yet readily visible when you get to the right spot. She's particularly beautiful. Locals have kept incense and offerings before them both which adds to the allure.... More
