“Surreal and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This temple looks ordinary from outside but this hides a world where man and nature have struggled over the centuries and nature - in the form of fully grown trees draped over temple walls - has surely held its own! the fact that many areas still look tumbledown just adds to the bizarre but wonderful atmosphere. Stunning!

“amazing combination of nature and ancient temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

it's too worthwhile to visit this temple! i feel lucky to capture the scenes of the temple with the big trees, as the temple will eventually collapse if the old trees die off.
The reconstruction site is a bit obstructing the view though it is necessary for conservation.

“temple with a huge tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a fantastic temple to visit but you did need to get there early to avoid the crowds.
just stunning to see this temple and all the tree roots, it is amazing, that the temple is still there.
This' where they film Tomb Raider. One simple advice that remember to bring good camera and big memory card with you.
One of the best attraction at Angkor, certainly recommended this.

Very old temple with massive old trees and roots developing in the temple walls. Dont leave Angkor without vising it ...
