Srah Srang, Siem Reap
(3.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Srah Srang is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Siem Reap Edition.

  • Small place on the river with the remnants of a boat dock. Used to be the viewing platform for the king to watch races. If you have a few minutes stop and check it out.

  • Royal pond. Good view and good spot to view sunset.
  • Nice historic place, peaceful and rather quiet if you can find the right location.
  • Really interesting place in theory. Enormous man made pool, but it was dry when we were there and really nothing spectacular to see.
  • If you have a chance to visit there don't forget to have roasted chicken!!!
  • We stopped here for lunch in a restaurant nearby and managed to take a few good shots. It's beautiful here!
