Set on many different levels, this is a great site to explore.

Lions flanks the doors and I loved the elephant statues in each corner. So angry to see some idiots climb on the elephants for photos. It won't be long before they fence these off to keep them preserved.

A few steps between levels but manageable for kids and fu. To explore each level.

Here you would notice the material used in the construction of this place is a lot different from the rest plus there are elephant sculptures at every conner unlike the rest where you would see the garuda or naga at the conners and enterences. A place worth visiting for its uniqueness.

This was one of my favourite temples. It is older than most and was originally in the middle of East Boray reservoir.Now it sits like a castle.Also has large statues of elephants and lions on each level.Didn't travel with children but I suspect this would be a temple that children would like given the type and size of the statues.An easy visit and one I really enjoyed.

Near the Pre Rup Temple, in the middle of what should have been the East Baray reservoir, lies the Eastern Mebon, which is similar to the Pre Rup but somewhat smaller. Just like the Pre Rup, the East Mebon is largely made of laterite and brick, with the doors and statues made of sandstone.

The distinguishing feature are the stone statues of elephants and lions which are placed strategically around the temple. Lions flank stairs and doorways, elephants are at the corners.

One of the less impressive temples on the big circuit, this has a plainer type of art style although is relatively well preserved. If you are in Angkor for 2-3 days then no harm stopping by, it's only small so only takes 20 or so mins to visit

I visited as many temples as I could in 2 days and enjoy climbing high. This was good and the holes in the brick work were intriguing. We did it on our way out to Banteat Srei,. About 30 minutes is all that is needed here though.

You need not to spend that long at this temple because it's relatively small but the most interesting part would be the elephants statues. But one could not avoid imagining how vast this baray would be during its hey days.

Another beautiful temple with plenty of artwork to enjoy. Easily identifiable by its elephant sculptures. Not in as good of a shape as other temples, but definitely worth exploring, especially as it's not so crowded.
