  • This temple is further away from Siem Reap and so much quieter. Known as Citadel of the Women, its approached by a long walk, then you go through the entrance gate. The temples are surrounded by a lov...  more »
  • This was nice to visit but not as memorable as other temples. Maybe it was cause we were templed out & it was the last one wee visited on the small tour circuit. It was still nice to see. 
  • It was the atmosphere here in the temple and Royal Villas is like building. I thought can play this by Ferie accommodation as well, fully functional. Ruins of Angkor are attracted from around the world the Mission of the various countries as doing investigation, excavation and restoration from the 1920s looking at Wikipedia, I felt. Had visited while I compared it with the Japan is both States and municipalities around the Castle restoration and reconstruction has struggled is because Japan's castles from around the world value as recognized, even though I once restored by mission around the world. Country Japan even now 24 million inbound visitors will come from more important heritage of the country take care that is felt at the heritage of other countries.

  • Constructed by king Jayavarman VII, this buddhist temple was built from soft sandstone in middle of the 12th century and the beginning of the 13th century. Banteay Kdei temple is extremely elegant and beautiful that capture the attention of people once you go there. The appealing dance hall was decorated with a seated Buddha and Apsara dancer.
  • Good architecture among the small circuit., Similar looking to Ta Prohm but on a smaller scale. There is a view of the river after you exit the temple
  • Not as frequently visited, and one of the older temples, this is great for a late 2nd day, or early 3rd day trip to the temples once you've seen the major sites.
  • One of the many temple complexes near Siem Reap and Angkor Wat. Beautiful ancient architecture.
  • Similar to Ta Prohm with large surrounding wall.
