5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

All part of tour of temples within Cambodia - each temple had it's own charm and details, this was amongst the best visited.

“Ta Prohm, but not as famous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This is a stunning temple, and easily overlooked. Do not miss it, it will surprise you with its size, simplicity, and beauty. The trees are also reclaiming it (like Ta Prohm), slowly but surely, and some of the trees are just beautiful...take the time if you can.

“A temple in the wilderness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This place is beautiful and largely unrestored. You can see roots growing through the rocks and huge rocks piled up as you walk through.

“Deceptive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Absolutely fantastic temple. It looks deceptively small until you get up close and look inside and discover it is all hidden behind. Spectacular carvings.

“Like a hall of mirrors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Despite the essentially simple '+' shape layout of Preah Khan its easy to get lost as each of the 4 long corridors looks the same and when you start wandering through the ruiuns its easy to forget just which way you came in. A little further out than the majority of the temples its worth paying your driver a couple of extra dollars to view this gem.
