The temple of "Preah Khan", or the "Temple of the Sacred Sword", was built by legendary King Jayavarman VII, in the 12th century, and was dedicated to his father, King Dharanindravarman. It is located at only 2 kms Northeast of the "Angkor Thom" citadel on the "Grand CIrcuit" and includes moats, ramparts, temples and shrines. It was partially cleared and restored in the beginning of the 20th century, but the ancient living quarters of monks, students and servants are still surrounded by dense areas of rainforest. "Preah Khan" was originally built as a Buddhist temple but, along the centuries, hinduist shrines were added. So, the central shrine is devoted to Lord Bhudda, but the Western and Northern are dedicated to Hinduism's Lords Vishnu and Shiva, respectively. Ancestors are worshipped in the Southern area, being the main access to the central shrine made through the Eastern side. Take your time and visit this intriguing temple, with long corridors, beautiful sculptures, carvings, lingas and nagas. Enjoy!

We hired a guide months before actually arriving in Siem Reap and WOW did it pay off. Plus it was a great price for just the 2 of us to be gone 10+ hours. We were doing 2 circuits in one day. We arrived early afternoon and there were very little people there. Ta Som very similar to Ta Prohm. A lot of the jungle and tree root have grown threw on over the sight. But non the less it is incredible in its own way. Preah Khan means Royal Sword. Preah Khan was built in the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII to honour his father. the Architecture, statues and cavings still look amazing today. We spent about an hour here. Could have maybe used another 30mins.

I've lost track of how many we've seen in the past three days. I finally understand why people touring in Europe will ask...another cathedral??? It was still interesting and a bit different from the others but they all blur together.

After awhile the temples become a blur, there are so many and all impressive and incredible to see the history and culture. Great architecture, some 800 years old or more and statutes and drawings that have remained almost in tact for all these years. Most flat ground thru this temple but still blocks of stone to manuever so be careful walking and remember protection from the sun.

We did the 2 day tour using the 1 day pass as this was the offer at the time. On day 1 we did some of the more minor temples including this one, and it was very architecturally pleasing and great to see. I believe it once held the sacred sword and that it was built for the King at the time. There were much less tourists than Angkor Wat which meant we could walk around freely for ourselves and take any pictures we wanted without any trouble. A great little temple to slot into your itinerary.
