  • Also doing a lot of buildings that, like many others, is definitely worth a visit. Amazing art made at that time.

  • What an amazing place to visit. Nature in combination with the ruins of a very beautiful temple. Or at least it looks like that from all the different colours the stones have taken. Plan your visit to...  more »
  • This place has less tourist, at least when I was there. But still very impressive and nice to visit. Just walk around and enjoy the place.  more »

  • 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.
