“Beautiful, fine details”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

I really enjoyed this temple for the very preserved details and colors of the stones. I am not sure why, but this location did have a lot of orphan children that bugged us. I did enjoy the musicians though

“The "Gem of Women" is gorgeous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Our guide saved this one for last as she wanted us to have a special finish to our temple visit. Not just another temple ruin, this one has incredible stone carvings, stone monkeys and beautiful bas-relief work. Don't miss it!

“Too Crowded !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

It was a bit crowded as the site was pretty small. It would be better if crowd control could be applied for greater viewing comfort.

“Red sandstone Temple a few miles from Angkor Wat..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Smaller than some of the other Temples, but still a marvel of construction work so many years ago.

The whole area is also in unspoilt forests. Temples everywhere! Unbelievable how they built them so many years ago.

“Ladies' Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

One of the oldest and prettiest temples. Absolutely beautiful bas reliefs. A must-see. Not a royal temple.
