Prasat Kravan, Siem Reap

3.9
Visit Prasat Kravan, which consists of five towers in a row, and admire the impressive bas-reliefs. Inspect the detail of the incredible brick carvings, as well as sculptures representing Vishnu and Laksmi. In the central tower, you can see more images of Vishnu, while looking for niches containing depictions of guardians. Next, visit the south and north towers, both of which are dedicated to Laksmi. As the French reconstructed the temple, they used bricks marked "CA," the sign of the Angkor Conservancy; keep an eye out for the mark as you wander the complex.

  • It is something that I would say can be missed IF you are short of time or energy. Since there are countless temples around seeing them all can be daunting to say the least. Even if you take the 2day ...  more »

  • Prasat Kravan is a temple from the 10th century which consists of five reddish brick towers on a common terrace, located in the South of the artificial lake or baray called Srah Srang. The site was cleared of vegetation in the 1930s by Henri Marchal and Georges Trouvè. After the towers were restored on Bernard Philippe Groslier from 1962 to 1966 initiative. The temple faces East and I surrounded by a small moat. Its exterior is striking for its classic lines and symmetry. The central tower and the South have superstructures that leverage the false perspective by simple means of decreasing levels. The Interior of the shrine are notable for the large representations in bas-relief of Vishnu and Lakshmi have been carved on the walls of reddish brick, connected by a vegetable compound. This type of sculptured artwork is quite common in the temples of Cham, but rare in Khmer of landmarks. Surprised this set of towers that at first glance seems a very simple project, but when it starts to travel details and captivating perspectives appear! Honestly, I loved it!... available, its views, its details, symbolism, his mystique! wonderful to photograph! See this temple if or if in your visit to Siem Reap!

  • Nice temple. You can visit it as part of one of your loops discovering the many temples around.
  • Small temple but really worth a visit for it good shape and pink brick.
  • It's not very spectacular but cute temple. Maybe you should visit this temple for a short break only and visit the firstly Ta Prohm, Angkor Wat or Angkor Tohm.
  • A good Angkor temple ruin to start the trip. Clean and well kept surroundings make for a pleasant experience.
  • Very good.
