“Awesome place to climb around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

My brother and I really like this temple. This one was the best because we got to climb on the rocks pretty darn high. It was one of the first temples we went to, but not too crowded--like Angkor Wat (lots of tourist there!). The detailed carvings were cool and we liked all the high walls and doorways. Definitely recommend taking the kids here! They'll love it! Hope you'll like it. This is coming from the kid travelers who travel through out the world having cool experiences.

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.
