Just as interesting as ta Prohm with some awesome trees to the rear. i enjoyed visiting this temple the most, make the effort and get there at dawn, come 8am its bedlam. The old nun was there giving out her blessings in the centre of the temple, brilliant place.

I did a two day tour - including morning zip line flight of the griffon - and my guide took me here last. It was hot - I was spent - and this place might have been my favorite. It was small but not too small. The temples and stones are crazy - this place would not be open in... More

Try to get here first thing, low season and you will have it to yourself. Great atmosphere, trees like at ta phrom. Interesting as Buddhist carvings are on, lots removed and replaced by Hindu things. A firm favourite of mine

This massive compound (56 ha) was once a palace-university. It did not benefit from the extensive renovations made at Ta Prohm, so you really have the feeling to explore new found ruins, with many sections absolutely deserted. The security guards do their job in a visitor-friendly manner, helping you find the best views, guiding you to hidden apsaras, taking pictures,... More

Preah Khan is less crowded than Ta Prohm and well worth a visit, especially if you are looking for the 'trees growing out of ruins' photo shots.Really atmospheric.

This was one of the coolest temples I visited in Angkor - one of my favorites. It is epic in size and has a seemingly never-ending hall of doorways that lends a sort of haunted feeling and gives you the sense of being in a movie or a story. Unlike some of the other temples, there are no barriers or... More

When you have seen the Tomb Raider Ta Prohm, Preah Khan is merely a recollection - temple ruined yet beautified by the mother nature. It is however better preserved and more constructively cared Tips: Beware of police/ guards offering to take for you a snap or two photos. They are aiming for your dollars and expecting to be tipped handsomely... More

Literally translating into the "Royal Sword" this temple was built to honour king Jayavarman's father. There's quite a lot of walk but its worth it as its less crowded and with plenty of photogenic corridors . Tip : This temple is not covered by most of the single day temple tours. Hence you should specifically ask your driver/guide to take... More

I went to Preah Khan as part of the 'grand circuit' tour. I really enjoyed Preah Khan; its very original looking.

I visited PK with a remork driver from the 7 Candles Guesthouse (another great place). I so enjoyed it as it was far from over-run by other temple-hoppers. It used to be the centre of a vast complex including a university and it seems much humbler now but very evocative. The four long corridors all lead to the centre with... More
