Banteay Srei - sandstone temple!

This temple is mainly carved out of sandstone. Carvings are intricate compared to other Angkor temples. Need to have close up look on the detailed carvings.

This place is very nice but not among the most popular temples! Definitely lovely on It's own. There is something more spiritual and enjoyable about a place that is not filled with hundreds of tourists taking selfies and bumping into you, am I right? :)

37 kms away from Siem Reap this temple is one of the most beautiful ones, a must see. The pink stones used for its construction are far more durable than the ones used for Angkor Wat.

It took us over an hour to get there, and around 45 minutes to go through the entire temple. It would seem unwise to spend over two hours of travel time in exchange for less than one of visiting, here is why it is not: The ride, in tuk tuk of course (25 USD round trip), is interesting enough by...

Wow. Just wow. This is a jaw dropping temple in Seam Riep Cambodia. It simply takes your breath away. The pink standstone, and the ancient carving is mind blowing. So beautiful, its serene, yet full of character. This was one of my favorite temples.

This temple is further out than the others however it was well worth the trip as although it is a smaller temple, it was one of our favourites. The colours are beautiful and it's so detailed. It wasn't particularly busy when we went, but perhaps that was because we went first thing in the morning.

This was a beautiful temple however it was soooo crowded it was hard to absorb the beauty and atmosphere. It was a lot further away from siem reap than the other temples and we wouldn't make the long journey again, as there are much nicer temples closer by.

The trip to this remote Temple is worth the effort, alone, as you drive by local villages and see the way the Cambodian people truly live. Wandering chickens, dogs, cows, water buffaloes and even the occasional pig make for an interesting trek. The Temple itself is magnificent and in extremely good repair. The relief carving and statuary are truly stunning.

A delightful visit lasting 1.5 hours, and took an hour drive from the city. We were impressed by such elegant carvings of the site from the lasting for such a long period of 1300 yrs. We were told the pinkish colour ceramic upon which the carvings were retained to such condition today thanks to the wisdom of the early culture.... More
