“Tiny temple”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

A tiny temple but not less beautiful than others. Don't forget to look for a big tree with roots on west gate. When we were there, way too many tourist tried to pose in front of the tree.

“Cool 4-Headed Buddha Covered by Tree Roots”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Only a few tourist, and quickly done, maybe 20 minutes are enough back and forth. Definitely worth the visit, although this is not a main attraction.

“The West gate”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

It's a very small temple. The visit should not last longer than half an hour. But go till the end, the west gate, which is lovely overgrown by roots.

“Best for peace and quiet and a spectacular overgrown entrance to the temple”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Loved the solitude of this place and the wonderful overgrown gate at one end of the temple entrance. I don't this it get's anywhere near as many visitors as the other temples, so the lack of crowds is a real plus. It is small and compact and well worth the visit, so do put it on your list, along with Ta Prohm if you like the temples that have partly succombed to the jungle.
