Not too far from the main temples of Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and The Bayon but usually much less crowded. There aren't too many beggars or hawkers either so it's generally a good temple to visit if you like a bit of peace and quiet.

The main building is rather like an Aztec Pyramid and you can climb the steep stairs all the way to the top for a great view of the surrounding countryside. It IS very steep though and climbing down can be a bit of a challenge - not for people with vertigo! It can get very busy at sunset.

One of my favorites in Cambodia, the place is beautiful. I highly recommend to reach the top of the temple. It is so magical up there. The hike is all worth it. Wear comfy shoes or scandals

Went to watch the sunset, which sadly, when we visited, was shrouded in cloud. Got very crowded as sunset approached. Amazing 10th century temple, but one for the mountain goat; do not visit if you can't cope with steps over a foot high and a gradient of 70 degrees. Brilliant view from the top though.

A small but good temple to visit, but the stairs are very steep to get to the top. Not for the very unfit.

Hiking up this temple surely has reignited my fear of heights. As you go up and on the highest temple, the steps are quite steep and going down the steep steps will make your imagination run wild. It certainly added a rush of adrenaline coupled with reverence to the hands and mind who built such a magnificent structure!
