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.

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

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.

Nice place.. on the way to Baphuon temple ;)
Phimeanakas (Sky Palace ) is a beautiful name and a legend behind.
