Lots of vegetation growing thru the ruins which is quite beautiful. Deeply embedded in the forest so there is quite a bit of moss growing on the stone. A majority of the complex has come down. Not as big or intricate as Angor Wat and...More

Its a ruin of a temple situated in a foresty setting. It gives a different feel than the Angkor Wat. You can walk thru the wooden pathway inside and explored the ruins.

Hi, inside the actual temple you are not allowed to walk outside the wooden walkways. You an only do so in the outer temple and outside the temple around the moat.
