  • Literally "sacred Bull", it is fascinating to see the incredible preservation of the carvings of this monument which dates from the 8th century. It is recognizable for its 6 towers erected in memory of the ancestors of the King any.

  • What a beautiful, inspiring gem of a temple, without the crowds of tourists, allowing you to enjoy the carvings and the sacred cow statues. A must!  more »
  • With a cruise from Kampung Brooke visited the roluos temples ruins. Bacon, lolei and bakong each has a personality, you can visit the tourists are few climbers. There is that old atmosphere, a little older than Angkor Wat! Beside the bakong elementary school, I went there. I seen how children are studying in fine, touching the local Cambodian and the. Also, there was education in the depths of the bakong poor women and children to do volunteer school. May be worth or tours, or the bacon.

  • Prasat Preah Ko/Bako 9th Century, Siem Reap, Cambodia built to pray to the Hindu Gods specifically to please Preah Vishnu and to his beloved transporter Preah Ko. (Preah = God, Ba = Father/dad, Ko = Ox/Cow)
  • Six towers displaying set on a platform, all beautifully preserved carvings. Originally surrounded by walls and gopuras of which only vestiges remain. Preah Ko was one of the first major temples of the empire at the early Khmer capital of Hariharalaya. Preah Ko (Sacred Bull) derives its name from the statues of bulls at the front of the central towers.
  • Temple is quiet place early morning around 7.30am
  • Small place and not too much things here. But still worth a visit.
  • One of the oldest temple in Angkor and it is still in a pretty good condition. An easy walk from the parking lot and it is a small temple compare to the rest. There are six towers that still stand and they are quite majestic on a platform overlooking the main entrance. The intricate carving on some of the towers are still there. Another of the less popular temple in Angkor, wonderful for lingering around.
