Srah Srang, Siem Reap

3.3
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.

  • Sunrise at Angkor Wat's measure SLAs ran is still out spot on of off the beaten path. A nice Sunrise can be seen, even if the weather was beautiful. Please be careful before dawn to get to the dogs are sleeping around. After watching the Sunrise near the cafeteria at lunch ($1) buying it is nice to have breakfast while enjoying the views on the side of the pond, with the mat.

  • The scenery looked at King! Truly beautiful. Is of course attraction Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta prohm from close, so visits are recommended on the set.

  • It's not that impressive, but definitely worth a small stop for photos. On a sunny day you get beautiful photos of the lake.  more »

  • Srah Srang Morning Sunrise is an awsome view and serene experience To add more adventure, rent a scooter (usd8 for 24 hrs) and follow the google map... so much fun.
  • Beautiful place, there's nothing here but just a big lake with good reflection, I like it
  • This is just a big baray and the platform overlooking it is pretty basic. In comparison to the other baray, it is not that big. This spot has some shops so it would serve as a good pit stop for lunch or drink break. Sit on the bank and relax under some shade.
  • Amazingly big artificial lake, dug in 10th century and used both as water reservoir and sacred lake, having the temple rising from the middle of it. The temple is completely destroyed, the only remaining thing are the big serpents on the bank looking towards the center of the lake. Once, this must have been a magnificent site, but now really few things remain here to be seen. If you are not planning to come here for the sunset or the sunrise (which seem pretty beautiful based on all pictures I saw), you can skip visiting this place because you won't find any inspiring views during the day here.
  • One of the main temples in Siem Reap or rather a temple complex. It's rather big and quite tiring to cover the full area non-stop especially if you have kids in tow. Dont bother taking strollers, its not the right kinda of place for it. Read up hindu mythology to be able to relate to carvings in the temple. Local guide might help but they always in such a hurry to complete things.
