Banteay Kdei, Siem Reap

4.6
Admire the ruins of Banteay Kdei, a late 12th-century Buddhist temple within the Angkor city complex. One of the smaller temples situated inside the massive compound, the structure was constructed under the Khmer ruler Jayavarman VII, and designed in the Bayon style, known for numerous stone decorations and elaborate carvings. Easily accessible from the area's more famous and grander attractions, Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm, the temple offers you a less crowded and peaceful setting to explore charming stone walls and courtyards.

  • Some of the ruins of Angkor Wat-près-across the street from the entrance to Harrah's Grand. Best thing was the place personally. Almost no people photography take a good point. Look like a picture frame square frame.

  • Particular temple with the Citadel of monastic cells. Interesting reliefs and sculptures, which show all the high quality of art and Khmer culture.

  • Angkor ruins located right SRA Thrun so few tourists compared to other Angkor ruins. Carelessly approaching the photographer to tell people so watch out

  • Quite a few crowd touring this temple compared to Angkor Wat... do not forget to bring your water, as it is dry and humid plus the long walks inside the temple will make one feel exhausted so better keep yourself hydrated so you can enjoy the vast location all the more... I would definitely recommend to everyone to include Banteay Kdei in their small circuit tours.
  • This was by far my favourite temple around Angkor. We went here right after sunset and had the place to ourselves. Its so untouched and the plants are totally taking over. I got an unofficial guide here for 1usd to show me some of the better places to take photos. Definitely make sure you come to this temple
  • Very quiet! Not too many people around, which is surprising, cause the temple is beautiful! The surrounding forest makes it even more misterious.and
  • Today is Wednesday June 27, 2018 and I'm in Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia, on a terribly hot, humid, day long tour visiting Banteay Kdei, which are unrestored temples and a Buddhist sandstone monastery and is located near the "7 Wonders of the World" infamous Angkor Wat. This is incredibly gorgeous and part of your THINGS TO DEFINITELY DO while in Cambodia. ENJOY!!
  • Of all the temples we visited, i would probably skip this one. It’s still obviously very beautiful and worth the visit.
