Koh Ker Temple, Preah Vihear Province
(4.7/5 based on 190 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.

  • A temple that you plunge into the world of Indiana Jones and the temple of peril (at Disney) as mixture of stones, stones bundles of wood that support the stones... A real charm! At the end, a great pyramid on which to go up, it looks like among the incas!

  • 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.
  • Pyramid shape temple which is unique architecture among all other temples. Interesting.
  • It's an amazing temple and worth a visit!
  • A pyramid temple of Cambodia, Koh Ke. A secret history. Very good views in raining season.
  • Completely different to the standard temples of Siem Reap. Very much like the Central American pyramids. Very glad I made it out here.
