This was a pleasant stop indeed after visiting much more crowded areas of Angkor. It won’t take you very long to examine the entire place thoroughly. It seems so beautiful when you are walking up to it and so symmetrical. There are carving to Vishnu inside the pillars. It looks too nice to be original and my guide said that it had been restored. I would stop if I were you as it is so calm and peaceful here; even just to catch a breather from you many climbs and tourists.

You needn't stay here long but we finished our day here and it was worth looking around. If pressed for time, and if you've already seen Angkor Wat, Bayon and Bateai Srey, you could skip it. But will you
ever be back here?

Not many people visit this site as it is very small amd some of the tuk-tuk drivers don"t want to go there.It is worth a look though,consisting of five towers on a single platform with the largest tower in the middle.the towers have some really ornate carvings onthe inside wall,Worth a visit to this little gem.

Prasat Kravan consists of 5 towers made of red brickstones standing in a line. Not spectacular from the outside the central tower contains a linga, the symbol of the power of creation of Shiva, and 2 exquisite stone carvings of Vishnu.

This temple is made of bricks instead of stone. Much quieter one and a small one also. Nice addition to a temple tour as it doesn’t demand hours of time.

This is the last temple that I visited on my Angkor itinerary... as well as the smallest! It consists of 5 red-coloured mini towers standing in a row, with the middle one being the tallest of the five. The unique part of this temple is the uniquely-sculpted wall art on its inner red brick walls.

It was also my most appreciated site. The sculptures of Vishnu and his consort and other carvings with in the interiors of two of the five towers are impeccable. I love the color of the brick used in these creations. As always they have a central main tower offset by two towers, smaller. It doesn't take a long time to take in the site's wonders, but it certainly leaves a positive impression.

This jewel of a temple is a quite oasis in Angkor. The structure on the right has the most extraordinary carvings on red brick, made my jaw drop. Don't miss it!

The temple is oriented to the east and surrounded by a small moat. Its exterior is striking for its classical lines and symmetry. The central and the south tower have superstructures which take advantage of false perspective by simple means of diminishing tiers. The sanctuary’s interiors are remarkable for the large bas relief depictions of Vishnu and Lakshmi that have been carved into the walls of reddish brick, connected by a vegetable compound. This type of sculptured artwork is rather common in Cham temples, but rare in known Khmer monuments. The three bas reliefs on the interior walls of the central tower are representations of Vishnu. The interior walls of the northernmost tower feature a pair of bas reliefs of Lakshmi, Vishnu’s consort.

I found this place by chance going through the Ancient Angkor book and wondering what else was there to see. This a beautiful brick temple for Vishnu which reliefs inside the sanctum which is quite rare. The Sanskrit epigraphy is very intriguing as its in the local script. Spend about 15 mins here but do not miss it
