Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Explore the ruins of Phimeanakas, 10th-century Hindu temple resembling a three-tier pyramid. Five traditional towers stand at the entrance, and the ancient, overgrown edifice creates a striking impression. Take a tour and hear the story of a king who allegedly remained in the tower every night with the embodiment of Naga, the snake goddess, in order to preserve and maintain peace and prosperity in the country. Walk around and enjoy the views from the ground, but bear in mind that climbing the temple is not advised.

  • 吳哥王朝時代, 人們奉九頭蛇精那伽為神靈的宫殿, 是神話故事中一名由九頭蛇神幻化成的一女子, 每晚與吳哥國王相會. 
  • What makes Phimeanakas so interesting for me is the natural state of it. While other ruins are full of restored parts, this one is almost entirely natural, ancient. Another very curious fact is that d...  read more »
  • 名字非常好听,空中宫殿,其实只是因为这里是差不多吴哥王城最高的地方,也只是以前应该是最高的地方,因为在石建的底座上,之前应该还有非常高大的木质建筑,只是现在已经荡然无存,去的时候可能这里还在修缮,所以四处为了木栅栏,也不允许攀登,所以我们只是在周围看了看,遥想下当时的盛景,只剩下唏嘘和感叹,不过呢,说真的,这里真的没有之前的两座寺庙给人的震撼那么大。 
  • On top of the pyramid in that location was a pillar, while on the edge of top platform there are galleries. Phimeanakas is located inside the walled enclosure of the Royal Palace of Angkor Thom north of Baphuon
  • Gives off a very mystical vibe. Great place to chill under the trees. Worth going. Might be crowded on top
  • Phimeanakas is quite close to The Baphuon and is also a part of Angkor Thom. It’s not as large as The Baphuon but has a similar design. And once again there’s a steep staircase to climb if you want to go to the top. This is a temple that can be enjoyed from the ground, though. It was built at the end of the 10th century and would once have had a tall tower at the top.
  • Nice place.. on the way to Baphuon temple ;)
  • Phimeanakas (Sky Palace ) is a beautiful name and a legend behind.
