I visited this place as part of a cycling tour (butterfly tours, amazing place!) and it was absolutely amazing, a lot smaller than other temples I've seen but I feel it added to the effect of it

Only about 30 minutes tukruk ride out to the temple. At the rear of a newer model! Tourist police will ask you to sign in and pay $3 per visitor. At my visit this was being used to pay for repairs. Temple is in a fairly tumble down state but you can easily spend 30 minutes to an hour exploring.

The huge Buddha statue that welcomes you is already worth the visit and makes for really good pictures. The recently restored wat by it was closed when I visited it but could still take pictures of the outside. Not that interesting, though. The ruins, allegedly the most interesting part of this place, are very ancient and intriguing, but nothing close... More

45min from city stopped local hand making rice paper house worth a look in will surprise you. Pleasant ride with Tuk Tuk through country side. Buddhist pagoda is new, temple run down but interesting huge Buddha surrounded by lake. Worth taking time to see this sight.pics rice paper making.

We cycled here from Battambang which was really enjoyable. Lovely ruined temple, great for climbing around and photos. Giant Buddah is cool too. Only downside is that an old woman insisted on "Showing us round" which consisted of nothing more than walking in front of us then charging a dollar for the privilege!

A nice temple you can explore when you visit in Battambang. The temple is one of the most tourism site located near the city.

This wat is part of the Ek Phnom cultural tourism resort and you really need to check out the temple and other surrounding sights of interest as well. If you are sick of the normal crowds as per Siem Reap this is a joy to visit as I only saw two others while we were there. A lovely clean area... More

Went here and was surprised that I was only one of a handful of people there, its a very old temple that hasn't seen any restoration attempts but well worth a visit easily cycled to

I was wandering through this very old Wat by myself ... it was like being back in Angkor Wat in 2002 .... nobody here so I could spend time here without being crushed by tourists looking at this beautiful old ruin with its wonderful carvings. It was a 20 minute tuk tuk ride from my hotel but well worth it... More
