The temple is a little off the standard round - about 3 km east of the East Mebon. This means that you stand a good chance of having it to yourself.
The impressive surrounding wall is about 6m high. The gopuras have some good deep relief carvings of scenes from the Ramayana. There are more relatively well preserved carvings on the lintels and pediments of the inner enclosure surrounding the single tower.
