You need to walk a bit of a distance after you get off from your vehicle. The temple is being restored. There are plenty of photo opportunities. At the end of the temple is a nice resting place under the tree with music by local musicians.

The details on these temples are just awesome. I can spend the whole day scrutinizing every details that it has to offer. They have an unbelievable faith for the Gods to build something like this.

Very unique and beautiful temple with the pink appearing volcanic stone. Well preserved and different from many of the other temples we saw. Make sure to get a guide so you know where the library was, dancing hall, etc (highly recommend Happy Angkor Wat Tours, ask for Mr. Bun!! )

We went by tuk tuk and had a good feel for the country side and small villages on the way . A small temple but worth the visit

This has exceptionally fine quality carvings. These cover all surfaces of the lovely pink sandstone. We were told the temple represents a 'jewel of Khmer art.' we found it interesting that this temple was sponsored by a member of the royal court but not a king.

Compare to the other temples in Siem Reap, this is a small temple. You can use Angkor Wat tickets here.

My darling partner and I toward this fabulous park with the help of a great guide Mr Clean from Happy Angkor Tours in the hot and humid weather of late summer – autumn in Cambodia. The trip was worth every bit of the effort to witness this astounding piece of Khmer's amazing past
