The temple is one have many large tree inside similar to Preah Khan and Ta Phrom. The temple is under contraction so be careful to not cross the line. Careful with the rock and carving. In the morning is much better to visit this temple.

This temple is similarly constructed as many others in the Angkor complex. I don't have much of an impression of it as I did with others, so I would only recommend it as a stop over on the way to another temple. I also agree with the previous reviewer that the peddlers on the inside of the temple are annoying and should not be there. It's bad enough that you are bombarded with a million sellers when coming in and out of the temples let alone having them on the inside.

This was the last and worst temple we visited in the Angkor Wat complex. We went inside in late November 2011 and was pretty disappointed to find that the locals had actually set up their souvenir stands inside the temples on the ancient ruins. You are trying to appreciate the work and they are trying to sell you some cheap paintings. Kids also were in their working their trade. It was pretty disappointing and I don't know where the tourist police were on this one. The temple itself looks like a smaller and less impressive version of angkor wat/angkor thom so is definitely miss able.

I recommend it because I felt alone in this world, having visited it at 7.30 AM, we were the only ones with the working staff... A special and different temple, all in the length. Peaceful!
