A charming place

The temple is falling apart but the place is nice with lots of flowers and butterflies. It is very quiet and relaxing.

all three of the temples on site here and beautiful in their own ways. the actual historical site - set farthest back - is really a pile of stones (which you can still climb on and into!), covered by wildflowers and birds and butterflies. But some of the mantles have super detailed and amazingly well-preserved carvings - all older than... More

I am amazed by the size of the structures its worth having a guide so you know what you are looking at & the history it holds. Must see if you are in Siem Reip.

This is one of those little temples that to some extent is just a ramshackle pile of old stones but when you take into account its older than Angkor and you look properly at the intricacy of the carved work in the stones and you realise what a simply amazing sight it is. It's also lovely and peaceful - we... More

Ek Phnom is also easy to get to-just head north on the River Road (Road 1) a bit over 10 km (the road north of the Cobra Bridge snakes around a bit, but goes back to the river). As you are getting close to the temple, you will pass over a small concrete bridge. The road beyond will veer off... More

If you have a second day in Battambang after doing the southern sites, this temple is worth a look. Allow about half an hour at the temple because it's not a big site

We needed to pay 4 dollars for two people to see the outside of a temple and the ruins behind it. The temple is closed, so you can not go inside and the ruins are in really bad shape.

We went by bicycle in a confortable trip (just 12 kms about 40 minutes in a quiet countryside road). The ancient temple is closer to a new one and a big Budha statue. Regarding the ancient temple, do not miss to climb to the top to see the remaining beautiful reliefs, specially the "shake of the milk ocean". One dollar... More
