  • Tourist buses pass by, but few stop. Bike it's easier, it's on the way to Angkor Wat Angkor Thom. The rise of this monument is difficult because of its nature abrupt, but not unachievable. Not far away is a breeding of elephants that could cross.

  • I wonder if after this also restored? In very good condition and a single large stupa built at the top of the pyramid. This is pretty good atmosphere, other ruins like pagodas are not flooded so! Also looks like red brick (stone) to weed the MOSS because extra atmosphere you are well. It is located near the South Gate way and Phnom bakheng at nobody.

  • Temple near the South Gate of Angkor Thom: Temple mountain of brick, it is quite difficult to climb but it's nice for those who do not have the Vertigo we were less than 5 people on the site

  • Quiet place. You may miss this place but it is worth a visit. After all it is on your way to the main. Worth a stop and you may climb on
  • A towering 12-meter tall brick and laterite step-pyramid. Harshavarman I began construction or perhaps dedicated statues at the site in the early 10th century. It was later improved/restored by Rajendravarman II shortly after the capital was returned to Angkor from Koh Ker. According to inscriptions on the doorway, Rajendravarman II consecrated the temple with the installation of a golden Shiva image in 947AD. It may have also served as a funerary temple. Combine with a visit to the South Gate in the morning or Phnom Bakheng in the evening. Lighting is best in the morning.
  • If you want to find less tourist and more quite temple, then go here. There were no one when I was there so you can fully enjoy its beauty :) be careful on its stairs , it is very steep.
  • A very accessible masterpiece of Khmer architecture. No repair work and no fencing whatsoever!
  • From top to the bottom and from bottom to the top I saw it's nice. In the morning or afternoon I think all photos took are beautiful. Oh all dears you should try to the top. There you will look at a beautiful nirvana Buddha statue.
