“Small temple, less frequently visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a nice temple in good condition. It doesn't take long to walk around, but it has some great long corridors and stone work, and far fewer people than most other temples.

“Peaceful temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Somewhat off the beaten track this is an interesting temple that attracts relatively few visitiors so it is a pleasure to discover.

“Incredible carvings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The most detailed carvings are to be found on the pink sandstone encased temple. It has been roped off to protect the carvings, which makes it feel more distant and not as up close and personal as it was in earlier years, but still a marvel to behold. Smaller and easy to navigate, but a bit of a drive from Siem Reap and most of the Angkor complex but worth it if you have time, which you should make for this awesome place.

“Restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This place was a welcomed visit, a restored temple and barely a crowd. We would certainly recommend this temple.

“Enchanting...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is near Banteay Srei. Less crowd but a must see temple list in siem reap. Carvings are also amazing. Easy to take photos since not much crowd here.
