This one is a the top of my list for recommendations in Siem Reap. We came here by request, otherwise I don't think our guide would have brought us. This may be why it is so much emptier when compared to some of the other main attractions. This is the "father" temple and the "mother" temple is also nearby (Ta... More

Before I visit here, I never know there is another very beautiful temple other than Bayon, Ta Prohm & Angkor Wat. Finding this temple in the middle of the forest, truly is a rough diamond in the hidden forest. This temple really reminds me of the legendary adventurous game of Tomb Raider, Lara Croft. Walking around here surely makes me... More

This temple is very similar to Ta Prohm (the Tomb Raider Temple) but is less touristy and is not always on the big circuit of Temples for visitors with a short stay in Siem Reap. The combination of colours of the stone, jungle, and mosses is beautiful.

Definately worth visiting. Not as touristic as the other temples so we can take our time enjoying this amazing temple.

This temple is amazing as it has very long alleys which door after door in a seemingly endless way as if one holds a mirror reflecting in another mirror. The temple has also some amazing trees growing over it. When we went on our way back from Banta Srey in the early afternoon, there were hardly any people there, great... More

Wicked, awesome ruins. Felt very privileged to be there and loads of photography moments. Truly awesome sights. After 3 day pass of the temple complex, it was all incredible and enough if I might add wi out being temples out and the excessive heat and sweat loss from our bodies.....take loads of water! Be warned a cloth to mop your... More

Much of this temple is in ruins, but the Hall of Dancers, with the deep relief motif, is a highlight. Other temples have more priority but if you have time, this is worth seeing.

Preah Khan has been left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins. Loved the Guards by the entrance of Preah Khan :-)

Will have you hushed, relaxed and contemplative if you're the type who likes discovering hidden gems, and lost treasures. I'd love to go back there, sit down under one of the beautiful Teak trees and just soak in the magic of what has been, and what is left beautifully.
