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.

  • Pond just what I thought, was the bathing place of the King. Hot springs and pools would not, like the pond.

  • Hodges as some of the ruins of Angkor Wat for Harrah's is before the King was a place to bathe. The bathroom--Lake. Now local people were able to see the appearance of catching fish.

  • Syrah Srang, or "royal bath", is actually a Royal, inground pool in 953. The King had set up all around the stairs and the stoneware, ornate terraces of lions and najas. It measures 700 m by 350 m at Angkor in Cambodia. A great place to sit and rest. There are also sellers of clothing just next door and a nearby temple.

  • Nice lake .. it’s use to be a common bath place there.. the water is still clear and it’s not to busy place .. a good stop to take a break .. you can easy buy drinks and food around!!
  • A good way to get away from the heat during your Angkor Temple tour. Local music was being blasted while I was sitting there at noon, when the sun was highest, but I didn't mind. The cool breeze more than made up for it.
  • Beautiful view. I imagine sunrise and sunset (on the other side of lake) would be nice and quiet here
  • 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
  • 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.
