  • 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.

  • The name means the Sacred Bull. This temple is part of the Roluos Group and it is the first temple to visit when coming from Siam Reap. It is far away from the other Angkor temples as it was part of t...  more »
  • We visited mid morning and were more or less the only tourist there which was rather nice given the usual crowds at most sites. This is a nice group of temples which do not seem to conform to the norm...  more »

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Temple is dedicated to Hindu deity Shiva, and the name of the temple – Sacred Bull – comes from 3 sandstone statues of bulls standing in front of the temple, representing Nandi – bull who servers at the mount of Shiva. You can find images of Shiva on central towers. There are also interesting carvings on false doors on each of the tower. In general, all the temples around Angkor wat are interesting and visiting any of them would not be a mistake, although there are some that are extraordinary and are not to be missed – this one is not one of them, but can be a good starting point for your Khmer temple tour.
  • Close at 5.30 strictly, you won't be able to go in even one step afterwards. Definitely not as stunning as Angkor Wat or Angkor Thom, but if you learned the history, you'll appreciate these Rolous temples.
