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

This is the first temple you come to after visiting Angkor Wat and then Angkor Thom. It is more over grown than the first two and feels wilder, it was also much quieter but more tumbled down. It was much bigger than I initially expected and had an old stupa in the middle. I loved wandering around this temple it... More

less known that angkor watt, less good condition but less tourists too. here you can still feel the soul of the temples, the silence of the jungle.

thought this would be another little temple for us to spend 5 mins and go, but it turned out to be much larger than expected. walking through it was akin to a jungle hike with all the fallen stones and overgrown trees. the entire place was quiet and not overcrowded with tourists, which gave us enough time to walk around...

This temple reminded me of both Bayon and Ta Prohm. It has a unique combination of features that makes it very interesting. Even though it was the last temple we saw, it was still as captivating as the first. It reminds me of why Siem Reap is such a great place to visit.

I hadn't heard of this Temple before.. This site was very large with wonderful shaded and peaceful areas to roam and take beautiful photos..or just to sit in quiet and ponder. Compared to the major sites this one has far less people.. Make sure you include a visit on your travels 👍
