Srah Srang, Siem Reap

3.4
Experience the view of a sunrise reflecting on Srah Srang. The reservoir stretches over an area of 350 m by 700 m (1,148 ft by 2,296 ft), but water floods only a part of it. See the legacy of the Buddhist minister Kavindrarimathana that dates back to the 10th century, noting the architecture of the place, with stone serpent heads and garudas with unfurled wings. As you approach the water on the steps guarded by two stone lions, soak up the ancient atmosphere of the baray.

  • ... to take a bit of freshness out of Banteay Kdei. This site has very beautiful terraces of sandstone, decorated lions and nagas. .

  • This is a nice place but quickly done on your way from one temple to another. Nothing special. Maybe for sunrise but not during the day.  more »
  • When you come out of the Banteay Kdei, will see the magnificent Syrah Srang terrace, the photos are magnificent especially since there was no one!

  • Nice place to watch a sunrise and few people go here. There's just a big water feature and not much else. There's a small temple across the street that opens at 7:30
  • Went with very high expectations to see the sun rise, but sun came out very late due clouds! I think majority of the days may be like this. But the wait was rewarded by the serene experience. The solitude, chirping birds, the old statutes of serpents standing gaurd over centuries, multi coloured sky reflecting on water.... It was a good experience. Stunned by the visionary ruler who initiated this project!
  • Place is very good and quiet, also not crowded. I have no ideas but i find this place very relaxed and very nice, may be it's because there's less crowded in this place. When we went there last year, I accidentally found the rainbow over my head after rain fall, the best moment of my life with this place.
  • Came here for sunrise at the advice of our tuk tuk driver. Beautiful reflections off reservoir. Very few people here.
  • If there was ever a place that encapsulated the innocence of a culture that is trying to modernise, this is it! The remains of one of the greatest civilisations the world has seen has been in ruins for centuries and it's still right here in Srah Srang...
