Take a Tuk Tuk to the Roluos Temples
Jan 2020
A suggested itinerary is to group together Phaser Leu Market and the Roluos Group in the morning to experience the Cambodian Culture.

Roluos Temples group include Bakong, Preah Ko and Lolei Temples
Nov 2018
As I have seen (and reviewed) them all I would strongly recommend to make the 1 hour trip to see the Roluos group and Bakong Temple.
This is an incredible Temple, not as big as Angkor nor surreal as Bayon and its faces protruding from the walls, but I'd dare to say more beautiful than Ta Prohm (liquid trees)

Bakong is a big high square structure, rather well preserved, with gardens ans ponds around and as it is almost deserted by tourists, the atmosphere is unique.

Preah Ko is much smaller and you will see it no matter what as it is right on your way to Bakong, so I gather you'll stop by it and spend some time there.

Lolei you'd better skip as there is not much to see and the drive back to Siam Reap is still another long hour (with no AC if by tuktuk)

Worth a visit

These temples are further away from the city centre but definitely worth a visit. The drive takes more than an hour to an hour and half each way but the visit can be done in about half a day. Did these and visited the floating village on the same day.

1.5 drive from Siem Reap to this first capital of Khmer Empire
Jun 2019 • Family
The first capital of Khmer Empire, we feel so privilege to be able to visit this historical site. Our driver told us this temple was build back in the 9th century which makes it an even older temple than Angkor Wat.

We spent a wonderful 3 hours here and ended up at Bakong for the end of day sun. Preah Ko is beautiful with its red sandstone towers and Bakong majestic. One of the highlights in our 3 day temple tour and a definite recommendation.

Enjoyable Visit

These temples were built around 877s and were built from bricks which is not the case with other temples in Cambodia. It was not very busy so we had adequate time to see it on our own time

Oldest Khmer temples
Dec 2018 • Solo
For those interested in ancient structures, these are some of the oldest permanent structures built by the Khmer in the 9th century. The temples were part of the first capital of the Khmer Empire - known in the day as Hariharalaya - named after Hari Hara a Hindu deity representing a fusion of Hindu Gods Vishnu and Shiva. The temple complex consists of three main temples - the Bakong is probably the grandest and the best preserved, the Lolei and the Preah Ko.

The Bakong is the oldest temple mountain built by the Khmer and is constructed of stone in contrast to the other two which are primarily built of brick. The Preah Ko is the oldest of the three while the LoLei is the latest.

The temples are a short drive from Siem Reap are provide an insight into Khmer history. Being less famous and off the beaten path, they are not as crowded as the Angkor Wat and temples in Angkor Thom and so make for a more leisurely visit. Entrance to the three temples is included in the Angkor pass. So no need to pay extra for these temples but make sure to carry your pass. While the Bakong is grand, the other two temples are not too large and you can easily cover all the three temples in half a day.

Silent place to enjoy sunset
Dec 2018 • Couples
It is peaceful place to visit sunset although it is closed at 17:30. Staff here have not urge us to leave and allow us to take photos. We have left there at 6pm but there are still few guys on the top. No wonder when they will leave. haha

Far from the maddening crowds
Nov 2018 • Couples
We throughly enjoyed our half day trip to the Roulos temples as it felt so serene and uncrowded and we could soak up the atmosphere rather than follow busloads of tourists chatting at high volume.
We did this trip on our 3rd day after completing the Small & Grand Circle and it was my favourite.
Thanks to our brilliant Tuk Tuk Driver we also enjoyed a countryside tour along the way and off the main road to see local people harvesting rice, picking and washing their crop of "Morning Glory" to prepare for market and most of all to experience the amazing friendliness of all the local people we met.

Small but worth a visit
Aug 2018 • Couples
The Roluos Group of Temples were historically significant. They are smaller in scale, compared to Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, but the stories behind them are nonetheless fascinating. I visited these places as part of my 3-day tour, spent about 2 hours visiting all 3 and had a local guide telling me the tales. Lovely places.
