This very small structure is not so frequently visited as many of the other temples in the area. When we visited we were treated to the beginning of a thunder storm, which made the swampy scene along the wooden walkway leading to the temple seem rather eerie. The small temple is surrounded by a moat and you cannot get right... More

I didn't find anything special about this place in comparison to other great places in Siem Reap. In case, someone is in Siem Reap for long holiday, it is good to view it but if you are on short trip then this can be skipped.

This temple was built in 1191 by King Jayavarman the 7th, after he defeated the Chams, today's Thailand, and it was dedicated to his father in the name of Abolakitashwar. Around 100,000 people used to live and work in this temple. There are three Hindu temples around this temple.

The highlight of this temple is its two storey Grecian pillars blending into the Hindu structure of design. It's huge and really like walking in a maze. You can find some interesting spots for photos. Less touristic then other temples so a great chill out.

Although there are a lot left for me to see in the Angkor and nearby area, this is so far my favourite after Angkor Wat. I have visited among others Bayon, Baphuon, Ta Phrom and Ta Som. Preah Khan covers a large area, a lot of the structures are somewhat different in style, there are a lot of interesting engravings... More

It was wonderull to wander around this overgrown temple and to find 'hidden' corridors. Be sure to look for the two sisters, these statues are difficult to find, you can ask an employee of the temple, he/she will show you

This was the first place we visited in Siem Reap. Wonderful history and photos for memories. Our travel guide Siekong (calls himself Kingkong) was very knowledgeable so the visit was very good.

This temple has so many doors it will make your head spin, but it is one of the best temples in Angkor Park. I would highly recommend visiting this temple, it is one of the main temples in Angkor and definitely worth seeing. Preah Khan was built in the late 12th century and is of Bayon style

A small temple but not forgotten as it offers peace and serenity. At this point, crowd is getting lesser due to it is not on a tour list and you might actually have a quality time viewing and appreciating the artwork.
