This large temple is located on the 'big circuit' outside the inner cities. It was built in the late 12th century by Jayavarman VII. It is not only a temple but funtioned as a monastery and Buddhist teaching centre. It is a wonderful place to explore with surprises around many corners that make you feel like an explorer finding an undiscovered temple.
Some of the complex is in ruins, some is restored, some has large trees growing through the stonework (a la Ta Phrom).
There is a long walkway through a forested area to get to the entrance and you can continue to walk through a covered gallery right through to the other side, or explore various side corridors which can lead to some beautiful statues and carvings. There is also a wonderful 2 storey library at the side, which it looks like a columned building from ancient Rome. It is also lovely to find a quiet spot to sit and listen to the sounds of the jungle. This is easy to do as the temple does not appear to be on the intineraries of tour groups (I suspect it would lake them too long to get through it). A Highly recommended experience.
