Of all the temples I visited in Asia, this temple has the most colorful stupas. It is photogenic in photos. There is nothing much to expect but it is nice to include it in the siem reap city tour. The nice thing is they allow visitors inside the temple. Cameras are allowed too. Wall paintings are pretty too. The place is clean.

We used our hotel’s two rickety old upright bicycles to explore the town of Siem Reap. Because it’s flat here, the ride is easy as far as exertion goes, but the traffic takes a bit of getting used to. No-one obeys the rules of the road so we just had to go with the flow, never stopping at stop signs or red lights, just weaving through the traffic, accelerating when necessary to get out of a bigger vehicle’s way. We pedalled past the Old Market and along the riverside to Wat Preah Ang, a five hundred year old temple complex in the middle of town where an even bigger, newer temple was in the process of being constructed.

The temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom have made Siem Reap a very wealthy town, wealth which is very much in evidence at this temple where the ancient and modern coexist harmoniously. Extensive topiary gardens with sculptures, gold-covered chedis, several temple buildings with glittering decoration, and the seemingly obligatory statues of little deer, birds, and women adorning the gardens testify to the general well-being of the community. We watched for a bit as several men tiled the steeply-pitched roof of the new building in the blazing 35 degree heat.

Recommended as a modern contrast to the Angkor Wat/Thom ruins.

A buddhist temple in Siem Reap. A lot of paintings line the walls. When walking along the riverside do not miss this place.
