“Huge, rather empty temple complex”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Huge, rare empty complex that has several areas to visit and explore. I spent about 30 mins exploring the east side without a soul in sight. Has some trees growing over the temples like Ta Prohm but without the crowds or wooden walkways.

“Favorite ruin of all.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This place is incredible, and massive. One of the best things about the temples is that there are magical little surprises that happen in the different temples. The best for me happened in this temple, stumbling upon an ancient monk (male? female?) offering cleansing prayers in toothless Cambodian. There was no one else around, and this monk seemed to pop up out of the ground!

“Lovely ruins”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Another wonderful ruined temple that was a great deal quieter than some of the others we visited. Lots of walls collapsing, trees growing through and narrow passageways. Another great one to visit.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Like Ta Promh, a temple with jungle growing over it, but less famous, and therefore less crowded. Well worth the trip

“Get that Iconic Photo”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Wonderful ruins being overtaken by the jungle. Tis is the place to get that photo we've all seen of the ancient stone being overun by the fig tree roots.
