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.

  • Attractions here, though is the Temple of Prasat Chrung, Tom. And the number of cafeteria and shop at the entrance of the temple, go back through. The floor is prepared each morning, and arrived at the 8:00 morning, but on the sidewalk put broom clean the traces. Green tree leakage day filled in, go to the back. Go to a surprising and deep. Then came into view. Big seven-stage is called the 'plan' pyramid! Available from the front. I went back on the left, climbing the steep stairs of wood to the top! Square rainforest jungle, far away mountains on the border with Thailand, looks close to coerce settlement. Very early in the morning, no tourists. Around at bicycle (their own) and ruins of a quiet but major attractions is a "plan" in the temple Prasat Chrung, Tom. I didn't think better went as far as paying high prices remains the most is small, you can have, if you are interested in Hinduism, a symbol of Shiva lingam on the miniature sculptures made it or not. Way to go cheap. From Siem Reap here coca ruins of 11 km up Sula young village in front of minibuses that lernturis one way 2.5 US $ can to. Also watching in a motorbike taxi from SLA young village, explore. Isla young village guesthouse. (Little thing) and go thru young village morning 7:00 on Highway 64, waiting is lernturis can I get taxi. I picked up the lernturis with bike on my way home, back in 2.5 hours from Siem Reap. (Depart took eight hours. ) Ruins entry time limit (7:00 - 17:30) and also from the ticket one way 10 kilometres away for morning sun and sunsets and from the ruins of enjoy. But here and there was established beside the ticket office of the benmeria public toilets. Also, the intersection go to coerce settlements left in the temple Prasat Chrung, Tom? Also have public toilets. It is safe and relaxed belly.

  • Very cool temple reminiscent of the Mayan pyramids in Mexico. Stairs to the top of the temple with gorgeous views of the Cambodian countryside.
  • The view on the top of the temple is dominated and peaceful, rare people there so you can get a really peaceful moment to enjoy the cloud, the view and the feeling. You can't even imagine the surrounding is so flat without building and artificial things around, it feels like in the top of a Maya temple in the middle of no where.
  • Amazing! Though not part of Angkor wot, but the top view is surely to check. The location is far from siem reap, better to be combined with preah vihear temple as one day itinerary
  • Pyramid shape temple which is unique architecture among all other temples. Interesting.
