This was one of the last temples we visited and it was by far the best! The architecture, the feel, the serenity far exceeded the rest. Even Angkor wat in our opinion! Do yourself a favour and don't leave this off your list. It is on the large tour of the temples!

Though greeted by headless statues (ruined through the passage of time due to various causes, I guess) lining on both sides of the gate, I could not help being impressed by the long, long corridor (it could LITERALLY very well be about a kilometer from one end to the other!) inside this ancient palace building and also could not help...

Preach Khan is very worth a visit - in the top three in my opinion! Quiet and on its own in all it's glory!

As excellent as the rest, smaller than Angkor Wat but great architecture and photo opportunities of the many carved reliefs
