This temple is on the south group of angkor wat archaeological park, on the not too high hill. There is modern buddhist monatery on the left side. The temples themselves are severly ruined. But some pediments are well preserved and reliefs of guardian ladies are the masterpiece here. While 2 of buildings are scaffolded for renovation, the other 2 of... More

Lolei is part of the Rolous temple group, which includes Bakong and Prah Ko, both of which are not even a 10 minute drive away. Despite being the youngest of these temples, it is in a vey poor state of preservation. The German government has underwritten preservation work and there is a lot of scaffolding on several of the buildings.... More

Lolei is one of the smaller temples in the Roluos Group it is still worth the effort to visit, especially if visiting others in the group.

The last of the three Temples in the Roluos group and to be honest, not worth the effort. Two of the three buildings have scaffolding from top to bottom (and according to the guide, has been like this for 3 years).

For the hardcore history buffs or those wanting to tick everything off thelist, you should go and see (along with the small circle and big circle of course). If you only have limited time in Siem Reap and can't see 20+ temples, then you could give this one a miss. It is mostly sectioned off due to repairs, and isn't... More

Prasat Lolei was built by King Yashovarman I in 893 at the center of the Indratataka Baray in memory of his parents and his mother's parents. The Sanskrit inscriptions on the door jambs provide particularly detailed information as to when the main divinity of Shiva was consecrated. As major restorations and constructions are going on at the moment, there is... More

Still covered in scaffolding with access rather limited. Worth seeing since you've come all this way out of Siem Reap, showing a different design from the other two Roluos complexes.

The entire complex was covered in scaffolding when I went, so not much to see...but it's close to Preah Ko and Bakong which are worth the stop...

Took us 45 mins>1 hour to reach this temple via tuk tuk. We were the only visitors at 8am. Unfortunately the entire temple is currently covered in scaffolding. None of the temple can be seen. There are a few few surrounding buildings to explore but we headed off after 10 minutes.
