Preah Khan, Siem Reap

4.7
Part of the Angkor complex, Preah Khan consists of a Buddhist sanctuary surrounded by rectangular galleries. The 12th-century ruins enclosing an area of 56 hectares (140 acres) remain mostly unrestored and covered by vegetation. As you roam the carved corridors and walk through a myriad of doors, try to find hidden statues representing various scenes from Buddhist tradition.

  • Less spectacular than others, this temple is less frequent. Visit quiet and at your discretion. Apart from this huge tree growing on the stones, the other curiosity is this room that resonates when you tap you on the torso. 3 times it seems that luck! Two or three restaurants at the exit

  • The plant was one of my personal highlights from Angkor. She's winding, beautiful and rich details, impressive rock carving. You should allow sufficient time for this spacious and well restsurierte ruins. It is worth!

  • This was the temple that King Jayavarman VII build for his Father, and if I am not wrong, he also build Ta Prom for his mother. (Will write a review of Ta Prom later). And the thing that strike me, bo...  more »

  • I’m loving how the temple is being planned at a very secluded place. There is a long pathway which tourists will be greeted by trees before entering the area. The layout of the temple is pretty complex and there are a lot of hidden corner/area which WOWed me all the time. The stones carvings are as amazing too. It’s a temple that worth visiting when you’re around the Angkor area.
  • This temple has been built by the King in honour of his father. It shows different entrances and a nice courtyard. Also nice to see are some wall carvings and the overgrowing trees. Further we have at the West Gate a double row of statues. Worth while to visit, less crowded and interesting for photo shooting.
  • Wow:this place is big!!!:can you imagine how grand the place is during their days.Amazing:how they built such places is mind blowing.
  • Likely Ta Prohm temple, Prasat Preah also a kind of huge temple was built by King Jayavarman VII, this temple still remain giant tree growing on the ruin temple. Recommended if you have 2 days for visiting Siem Reap and Angkor.
  • For me one of the most beautiful temple in the area! Very nice and you can really feel like and adventurer discovering this place again. Many small areas are totally "lost" within the temple itself and when you discover them, you'll be the only one there . Even if the temple is crowded.
