Srah Srang, Siem Reap

(180+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Our tuk tuk driver stopped off here on the way to Bantreay Srei so that we could admire the sunrise - it was only a quick stop but definitely worth it!  more »
  • We had lunch at a nearby restaurant to Srah Srang - there's nothing really to see - basically it's just a reservoir/lake. We expected more - however you can get some good sunset photos from here.  more »
  • 看起来就是一个小小的湖面吧……十分钟就能连照相加看个差不多,但是感觉还不错,后面的草坪有当地小孩子玩。对着水面坐一会儿…很放松。如果是时间很紧可以跳过…不需要特意来一次  more »

  • 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!
