A temple dedicated to the father of Jayavarman VII, this place has different structure than the other temple especially the Rome styled pillar. There are similar trees growing on the temple rooftop found in Ta Phrom. You can take plenty of photos here without queuing. Not many visitor in early morning and we enjoyed the serene, quiet and sense of... More

Preah Khan Temple, AKA Royal Sword, is one of the biggest temples in the Angkor Complex. On the grounds you will find a maze full of long corridors, hidden rooms, and stonework etched with fine carvings. I enjoyed my time exploring the area and getting lost in the darkness, and being found in the light.

Loved seeing this temple for the first time. Not as crowded so that was a plus, and getting there early in the day was a good decision. So much to admire here. Highly recommended.

May not be as pretty as the other famous temples but still worth a visit to see the bull statues, or what is left of it. A 30-min visit for some history by a guide and photos should suffice. Our guide was awesome!

Less visited and less known, hence one can enjoy the relative peace and explore without too many tourist throngs, once supposed to have been a city, its been restored partially. Wwaht I found very interesting was the enterance which featured the mythological churning of the ocean from Hindu Myths.. But do this only if you have a lot of time... More

We visited this Temple post the visit to Ta Prohm in the morning. Its around 5 KM from Ta Prohm and our tuk tuk suggested that we go to Preah Khan instead of Banteay Sarai as the other one is a very small temple. Its a long walk to reach the interiors of the temple but filled with lot many... More

This is a medium sized, flat, galleried temple in Siem Reap and is only partially restored. The temple is surrounded by a moat with a causeway leading to the entrance. The outer wall of the temple has garuda holding the naga images. As per the legend, its original name meant city of victory and the present name meaning holy sword... More

Another fantastic temple that is not huge and can be seen in an hour or two. Considerably less visited and less known but just as historical

As there's no clear 'way of visit' here, this place was just amazing to wander around and explore. It's hard to get truly lost as there are four main halls/paths along the four cardinal directions (east, north, etc.) But remember which one your tuktuk or car is at can be a bit of a challenge. Make sure you see the... More

Nice and peaceful location. Less tourists on site. Up and down all the steps, exploring the hidden passages and tunnels. Parts with tumbled walls and stones, beautiful carvings. This temple should not be skipped from the must see temple list in Siem Reap.
