Similar to Ta Prohm it is a sprawling site with giant trees engulfing some of the buildings but with fewer visitors. You can enter or leave via the "naga" bridge. Beautiful carved lintels and friezes, The remnants of a two story library also adds something different. Recommended if you have time.

Brilliant and another one that you must see. There are so many temples to see but don't miss out on this one as you will not be disappointed.

Preah Khan is a bit further "in" the park and maybe that is why it feels less busy. There is so much to explore here. It is like being on a voyage of discovery! The further in you go, the more interesting it becomes! Green and pink tinged stone and giant overgrown trees... It is full of carvings and photo... More

This 12 century "city" a probable Buddhist university is filled with interesting figures and friezes. You can cross on the causeway by a "naga" bridge from east to west or vice versa, so have your vehicle pick you up at the other side. Roots of the silk cotton tree push through the ancient stone like at Ta Prohm. This was... More

This is a lovely temple not too far out of Siemens Reap and we spent more than an hour here. Colors of the stone with green tinges and traces of pink were great in the early morning light. We also managed to be there when almost no one else was which made it perfect.

You will see many temples that have huge trees growing right on them. These three began growing when the temples were abandoned and most are around 600 years old.There is also an ancient pool and library.The coolest part is the small beam of sunlight and iluminates one of the rooms.

A beautiful temple with such intricate carvings in an almost pink coloured stone. Definitely one of the top temples to visit to see the contrast between them.

Preah Khan is located north of Ta Prohm. Most tourists miss it, but it is big and different. It is worth to visit!

There are trees strangling the walls and temples doorways, rubble falling down, rooms where you can beat your chest and it resonates like a drum, quiet alcoves AND not that many tourists crawling all over it like Ta Prohm. This is my favourite of all.
