We were advised to go here after being templed out and it did not disappoint.
The women's temple with it's monkey statues are our pick of the six temples we visited that day. Go here to see this temple, it's worth it.
Our Cambodian trip consisted of 44 nights in Siem Reap and 2 nights in Phnom Penh. And the hotels (Anantara Angkor Resort, Siem Reap; Palace Gate Hotel, Phnom Penh) helped us with vehicles and guides for our sightseeing trips. Our program was: day 1 (3.30-7.3-pm)...More
This was my favorite temple of Angkor Wat. It is the furthest from Siem Reap but well worth the long ride. I enjoyed the intricacy of the carvings in the red sandstone, it looked like the Jungle Book took inspiration from here.

Small temple with absolutely exquisite stone carvings. The sight is very well organized: starting with a big car park, an information center, clean restrooms, special exhibitions, well maintained gardens and nice restaurants.
Banteay Srei Temple (which means “Citadel of Women” or “Citadel of Beauty”) was built in the 10th century (completed about the year 967) to honour the Hindu God Shiva. The temple was expended in the 11th century and likely was in use until 1303 AD,...More

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 to one of the Angkor Wat temples for sunset, but decided to visit the Land Mine museum near Banteay Srei instead. Just as well, as the cloud cover increased so no sunset - just the amazing gold outline behind the jagged cloud fringes - looked like forked lightning! The most important thing about BS is the exquisite sandstone carvings - small but beautifully-formed - so go for that reason not the colour.
