Part of the Old Royal Palace complex and great to see. You can actually stop here and pick up a snack before going on your tour.

This temple, just north of Baphuon seemed lonely and quiet and hardly any visitors were there. There are some smaller temples in the King’s palace area and a swimming pool. It is a rather large area but the main temple itself doesn’t seem to get much attention. It is worthwhile to check out this area if you have a 3 day or longer pass but not on a one day visit.

Just like the old song, Temple of the King! For retreat, meditation, and relax. This Phimeanakas was built by a Buddhist King and located inside of Angkor Thom area.

It nears a royal palace area with big pool. So peaceful. I enjoyed walking alone in this site.

Not as impressive as a lot of it"s more famous neighbors it is built of a different stone to most of the close by temples giving it quite a red colour.There are many statues of loins on several of the layers of this temple still with good details showing.The steps on this temple are in a bad state of repair so best not to climb them.Not as busy as some of the nearby temples so possible to sit and enjoy the scenery in peace and quiet.

It is a few minutes' walk from Baphoun Temple. It is a small stand-alone ancient monument. Not as spectacular as Baphoun Temple, but you will certainly see it during your visit to Angkor Thom.

The temple looks like high in the air, no wonder they call temple in the air, which was described in a book by Chinese, he visited Cambodia around 15,16 centuries, in his book he name the temple- golden temple- this site is a must see.

Phimeanakas is part of Angkor Thom. It is lovely and well worth a visit. You are not allowed to climb up it so you can just have a look.

This three tiered pyramid was built as a centerpiece of the Royal Palace. There was a tower that is now gone and no entry to investigate the insides. Just looking at the mighty staircases still standing is impressive. The trees overgrowing parts of the temple make it seem even more enchanting, surviving the centuries in the jungle.

This temple is located a bit away from the Terrace of the Elephants. It is not possible to enter so just have a look from the outside. Allow 30 minutes here before you continue your tour of Angkor Thom.

Phimeanakas is one of a few temples inside the vast Angkor Thom complex, so you will likely see this as part of such a tour, but they don't allow you to climb it, and really, it's not much to behold compared to so many others.
