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.

  • Coca ruins archaeological site located 2 hours 30 minutes from Siem Reap seven-stage based on the pyramid of Prasat Thom. Hard can climb on the wooden stairs on the right side is toward the top of the pyramid, so take a look at, please try climbing. Impression I've seen is a pyramid grass withered, with photos of tourist information on "green pyramid significantly different impressions. They were taken in the rainy season seems to be, that was a little bit disappointed. Around, and just say "ruins" has several ruins. Is a nice site in Prasat Chrung Plumb brick and tree roots are memorable.
