Prasat Kravan, Siem Reap

4.0
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.

  • If you plan to do the "little circuit", take 15 to 20lmn to stop you in this temple which is on the way and worth visiting. It is unusually oriented North-South. Of the bas-relief, superbly preserved and dedicated to Vishnu and his wife Lakshmi, adorn the inside of the 5 towers that make it up and give it a distinctive silhouette, elegnante. Very beautiful!

  • This is my most favourite one. It made me remember Da Yan Pagoda in Xi'an China. These two have the similar style and are from the influence of Buddhist. This is an evidence that Buddhist spread over at that time to both North and South. North came to China and South to Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia........
  • One of the smaller Angkor temples, Prasat Kravan was created in the 10th century and boasts an impressive facade of red-brick symmetrical towers. The bright orange hue of the stone makes this temple a beautiful spot to stop off at. (Prasat Kravan is usually the first stop on longer tours of the Angkor temple complex.
  • A fine little Hindu temple from the ninth century.
  • Very nice place, calm and a nice surrounding nature. For me one of the nicest places in central Angkor town.
  • A little temple. But worst to see.
