All of the temples in Siem Reap are truly extraordinary and Baphuon Temple was no exception. There are a lot of stairs at this temple, but even if stairs were a problem for you then the landscape views from afar are worth the visit.

A lot of people might miss out on this one as there are other more famous attractions within the ancient city of Ankor Thom. This temple is one of the most difficult to restore as the foundations of this were largely destroyed when they tried to convert this Shiva temple into a Buddhist temple in 15th century. You can observe... More

I and my wife live in siem reap. We enjoyed this temple very much. Nice place to see in Angkor Thom temples. This temple is required you to wear long clothes. Should be under you knee and on your bowl.

This temple is part of the Angkor Thom complex and you will see it if you take the small temple tour. It is connected by a stone terrace to the terraces of the elephants and leper king.

Part of Angkor Thom complex, this temple is not so famous, not frequently visited compared to its neighbor. It's a shame since you can go on top and have a nice view, apart from this, there is a very pleasant forrest walk to another one just north from Baphuon.

Fascinating stone carvings produced many centuries before power tools were invented. Try to go with a guide who can set the historical context and provide an explanation of the carvings.

Beautiful temple, It has lots of very steep stairs but it wasn't too hard to climb, beautiful view from the top, visited right after Bayon, definitely worth it!
