Srah Srang, Siem Reap

(3.3/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • They become gradually as possible trying to digest lots of remains, and there is sense of the tuk-tuk driver waiting and toured the ruins of what is. It is especially noticeable that tend to orient people. But I see a couple of Westerners in such places. It is they have to their own time. Conduit for wind is building on the Lake, there's nature, but this place was reservoir water compared to air hard warmed to the surprisingly cool. Loosen kinda ruins the mission come from sitting down for a little while, the rest is just a good place to take a break, I recommend the.

  • First impressions are lovely tranquil site. Nothing much left to see but you get the feeling of why they chose the area. However lots of stagnant water with literally millions of mosquitos. Hubby got ...  more »
  • It is a magical place, also little known by the masses of tourists. At the beginning it seems only an expanse of water, shortly after you realize that make it hard to leave. Amazing.

  • 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!
