Built from the 6th to the 9th century AD, Sambor Prei Kuk ("the temple in the richness of the forest") was constructed during the Chenla empire, which pre-dated the Angkorian empire and, of course, modern-day Cambodia. As its name suggests, the ruins of the temples...More

Incredibly interesting to walk the temple route and see first-hand the pre-Angkorian temples that are here in Sambor Prei Kuk. Our guide had done some archaeology there, and reasoned that the brickwork was possibly all joined using tree sap, then burned away with purposeful fire...More

Visited Sambor Prei Kuk on the way back to Phnom Penh from Siem Reap. Was better than expected. The site is located in a foresty area and thus, it was not too hot. We happened to visit the site before they raise the entrance fee...More

Having traveled so much in India and abroad, this one place has disturbed me a lot. It’s scenic setting, wild growth around with pure air to breath and a calm mind to think, literally without tourists has stunned me. An ancient Khmer capital by name...More

Glad to have had a chance to visit this newly listed UNESCO heritage site. Centuries older than Angkor. Not nearly as spectacular, but far more peaceful. You can wonder almost alone through the temples which are surrounded by nature. The ride there from kampong Thom...More

It is totally worth doing the 3 hours drive from Siem Reap to visit this still pretty much unknown sites in Cambodia. The temples are older than the much more popular Angkor sites and they differ significantly in size and construction. The predominant material is...More

This is one of the top ten archaeological and spiritual sites of the world, but it is so dwarfed by Angkor Wat (about 200 kms. to the northwest) that few people visit. The ancient capital of the mysterious empire of Chenla (Zhenla), it flourished in...More

There are three sites in the jungle that you will need a guide to get around. This is the oldest archaeological site in Cambodia. Asin most other Cambodian sites year round, you will need to take water and mosquito repellent.

The now ruined complex dates back to the Pre-Angkorian Chenla Kingdom (late 6th to 9th century), established by king Isanavarman I as central royal sanctuary and capital, known then as Isanapura.
