If you've been to East Mebon, you'll notice the uncanny similarities. Nevertheless Pre Rup could give you a great sense of experience living the ancient life climbing the original temple stairs up to the top. Breath-taking view. A must visit!

We went here as part of a stop in the grand circuit tour. We wanted to see the sunset here, but we had to wait more than 1,5 hours. So we decided not to see it, but i can imagine it being amazing.

Went here for sunset, and freaked myself out because of the huge and scary stairs it took to get to the top. Found out belatedly that there was a wooden staircase installed at the back of the temple for sissies like me. Use those if you're in any way scared of heights! Lovely place to catch the sunset, by the... More

Different structure from the rest of the temples. Not big and easy to walk around. Good to have it in between heavy climb of other temples to take a break.

Our Tuk Tuk driver suggested after we visited various places to do Pre Rup for the sunset. Amazing place, where you climb on very steep steps to the upper level and get rewarded with a beautiful outlook.

We had a wonderful time on our first day at Siem Reap. It is not as crowded as the points in the main complex and is a little far from the main temple circuit.

I was told that this temple is famous for sunset view. Unfortunately, it was raining when I reached :(. The temple is not so interesting, especially after you see the Bayon and Angkor wat temple. The steps are bit steep and I had to be too careful while climbing up and down. One can definitely skip this temple, if short... More

This temple is built from bricks. Not so interesting since many temples are similar to this temple.The location is near to Mebon Temple.
