Koh Ker Temple, Preah Vihear Province

(4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Abandoned and undiscovered for over a thousand years, Koh Ker Temple remains part of one of Cambodia's most remote temple complexes. Inscriptions dating back to 932 CE have been found here, scattered across 42 major structures within the complex. The most notable landmark is Prasat Krahom, known for its red bricks. Don't wander off without a guide, as land mines continue to present a danger in the surrounding forests.
