Wat Ek Phnom, Battambang
(3.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
The ruined temple of Wat Ek Phnom offers a look at the architecture of the Bayon period, and is also the site of an ornately designed modern temple. The Hindu temple was constructed in the 11th century during the rule of king Suryavarman I, and although in disrepair and heavily looted, remains highly regarded for its intricately carved lintels and pediments. Around the site, you'll also have a chance to inspect the modern temple, boasting pillars and intricately rendered frescoes, and a large white sitting Buddha. A visit to Wat Ek Phnom represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Battambang itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • If you have a second day in Battambang after doing the southern sites, this temple is worth a look. Allow about half an hour at the temple because it's not a big site 
  • It is interesting but probably not a must if man of siem reap. We had a good leader who knew much about the story.
