  • Memories of Central America and its pyramid structures are awake. Also to the city of ur in river land Mesapotamia. Same school of architects? Or, much trite: To build in height levels for pyramids are easy. You watch children playing sand. Caution: On the side that faces one of the levels are desolate. Better, one of the three other sites benützn especially during the descent! The view from the top not overwhelming is the look very well, but.

  • Climbing the stairs, go up to the top. The view from the top is a little scary, difficult to climb the narrow, steep, so impressed. I think Khmer flourished was looking this scenery in the feelings and was deeply moved.

  • After doing research on ancient Angkor, I wanted to visit this old temple. Pyramids all over the world intrigue me. So glad my wife and I visited this place. I was able to set up a camera and film us ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Great and lonely
  • 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!
