  • Is equipped with the most beautiful temples but small's Adam-hung trees faded and the beauty and mysteries of the magnificent rampage did not restore the stone pillar would also like element element, as if the original was blessed with a beautiful ... There are also plenty of lounging under the shade of a tree overlooking the Temple of shadows, multiple gods, carved the inscriptions was fun looking at them. And I got to the Lake, people look at the front of the wedding came took pictures swim and close and. Sunset so beautiful ... And a nice lens at the bottom of the Grand Lake Lake as seen from a stage in front of the RT of the Temple from the entrance of an artificial lake created when I like ^ ^

  • Mast! But I think is no, if you have time, SLAs ran together look good. Here tourists compared to the ruins of the other not so much. It is a great relief.

  • As well as some temples like Ta Prohm, this was invaded by tree roots. Has an image of Buddha with altar, the target of worship sites.

  • 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.
