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

  • 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
  • I don't know if it's because of the lack of large crowds, or the fact that the temple is surrounded by a thick forest, adding to the eeriness of the place, but this was definitely one of my favorites of the lot. Unrestored and untouched. A surreal experience.
  • Great place! Worth a visit. You will find giant trees here as well. Not many people visiting so it is pretty nice.
  • This temple is not visited by large tour groups and therefore you can enjoy it leisurely. Definitely this should be add must visited temple list in Seam Reap.
  • Loved this place. Dilapidated but that's actually cool!
