This is one of the temples that you would be brought to if you go on the so-called Angkor Grand Circuit, which ironically, actually covers the lesser-known smaller temples. After visiting a few temples, it is easy to get all 'templed-out'. This one is distinct...More

It's the complex known for the many elephants. Not particularly big but worth the stop. Climb to the top for a good view of the complex and stroll around to get a view of the elephants.

This was one of my favorite temples for its red coloring and the elephant statues. It is older than Angkor Wat and the construction materials include bricks. There were fewer visitors than in some of the other temples we visited. As with the other temples,...More

This temple has some beautiful carvings and memorable statues. We especially liked the elephants and the lions. Part of its beauty comes from the lack of restoration. It has been cleared of jungle growth, and some of the structures have been supported for safety reasons,...More

It wasn't the best of the preserved temples. If you are pressed for time, one can skipped this one. The elephants on the corners in the outside wall is stunning.

What you’ll remember from this visit is the immense elephant statues here as many temples and accounts of their visits begin to melt together as many offer the same attributes. I remember vividly the colors of the temples and the elephants. It wasn’t crowded but...More

The temple is part of the big circle. The difference from the other temples here is, the colour of the stone and very well preserved statues of elephants.
