Phnom Bok Mountain Temple Tour from Siem Reap
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This temple seems small and when I was there only one other visitor was around. It was actually a bit sad. I find the place quite beautiful and the carvings are still quite beautiful.

The temple is a little off the standard round - about 3 km east of the East Mebon. This means that you stand a good chance of having it to yourself.
The impressive surrounding wall is about 6m high. The gopuras have some good deep relief carvings of scenes from the Ramayana. There are more relatively well preserved carvings on the lintels and pediments of the inner enclosure surrounding the single tower.

When we went here,we were surprised that the ruins are too smalls.
We spend much time to visit here,but no amazing and we think Angkor wat is enough.
There are many ruins in Siem Reap,but almost ruins are similar and we cannot visit all ruins.You should think and go where you really want to go.

This is a little off the beaten track and when we arrived there we had the place to ourselves. As well as the temple building there is an impressive terrace outside with an elevated walkway leading off into the jungle ... I wondered what it led to when the temple was in use. This is a special and serene place.

We did not have enough time to visit this temple to its full extend, but were there long enough to experience the intimacy that is created through the fact that the temple has two moats (as the only one in Angkor). It closes at 5pm (we thought at 6pm, hence why we were late)
