“Old and new”
Review of Wat Nokor

A new temple built in the remains of the old one. Interesting blend of the 2. Layout is typical of most of the Angkor temples, so nothing overly different to view historically. $3 to visit, a bit on the expensive side for what it offers, but still worth a look if you have an interest in temples

This is a smaller temple complex, built in the 11 century. There is a small buddhist pagoda situated with this complex and is still used today by the monks that reside there. If you are there mid afternoon, you may get the chance to witness a pray session. As this is a small complex, you won't use up to much time here, and you won't have to fight the getting good photos, as this temple is off the tourist route.

This was a great temple. Not super crowded and touristy, very beautiful. There were wonderful places to take pictures and a very manageable size with plenty of shade!

We visited Wat Nokor with a local guide/tuk tuk driver Mr Buth Gideon. He has considerable knowledge about this and other places in the area and could explain many aspects that the guide books don't tell you. It's a very interesting temple to visit with hardly anyone else there.

I cycled to Wat Nokor. It is a 15 minute (3 or 4km) ride along the main Phnom Penh road from the main bridge. When you get to the dragons ‘figure of 8’ roundabout turn left under the gold arch and continue for 150m. The small entry fee includes admission to the temples on Man and Women mountains 5km further up the road. Wat Nokor is a modern Buddhist pagoda situated amongst an 11th century temple. It has interesting passageways which make for nice pictures, and the lack of visitors means it is a peaceful place. The surrounding walls are in need of repair but most is OK considering its age. A good contrast of old and new. There are no guide books or leaflets for sale, just a few stalls outside selling drinks and snacks. The surrounding area is worth a look too, with decorative mini reservoirs and more small ruins. A must see if in Kampong Cham. If you are heading to the Man and Women mountains continue up the main road for 5km until you reach the bird statue, turn right and they are straight ahead.
