This is one of the temples that you would be brought to if you go on the so-called Angkor Grand Circuit, which ironically, actually covers the lesser-known smaller temples. After visiting a few temples, it is easy to get all 'templed-out'. However, this one is...More

This is an amazing smaller temple well worth a detour and especially so during the rainy season. Unfortunately we arrived at the peak of the dry season but still interesting.

The is a very unique location as it's built on an artificial island in an artificial lake. However, as this is the peak of the summer, there's currently little water in the lake. So, some of the mysticism is gone. Still, this is a wonderful...More

One of the more unique temples in the Angkor complex... used as a center of healing with intricate carvings and a lake on which it sits. Its a pity you can only go around half of it, but still worth a quick visit.
