This is one of the best photo opportunities I’ve seen during my visit to Battambang. The ancient ruins are surrounded by flowering plants of many different colours. The half day tour by Tuk Tuk was a highlight.

A giant buddha, 11th Century Hindu temple and a more recent temple are all worth seeing. Beautiful carvings in a clean environment.
