This temple is unique and should be part of your to-do list. The carvings featured are very intricate and beautiful. Unfortunately, it is impossible to enjoy this site due to saturation of tourists. Measures could be taken to limit the number of visitors both for...More

The intricate detail of the carvings will have you enthralled. There is nothing like a temple in Siem Reap. So worth visiting. Small market and cafe on the premises. Traditional music played.

Nice temple. But a shame they have not been able to preserve the temple. It's really been neglected.

The Banteay Srei temple is really beautifull, but has to give some credit to its surroundings. It makes the complete picture of the surroundings with the temple in it to appreciate the temple at its fullest. Amazing architecture and landscaping.

We were feeling a bit templed out so we decided to take the long drive out to Banteay Srei to enjoy the scenery along the way. The temple is unique in that it’s sandstone and has intricate carvings. However it is very small! You can...More

This is a temple that not ss many people go to see but it's very interesting and worth spending time at. Much of it is intact and the carvings more distinct than some other Temples.

We were there in the late afternoon (4 p.m.) in March on a slightly cloudy day but even then I would have been hard-pressed to call the sandstone colour "pink", more like a "pale reddish-brown". We were supposed to go back... More
