Book in advance your own tuk tuk driver by the day to fully enjoy the experience. You will then be collected and returned back to your hotel

We moved to Preah Khan from the victory gate of Angkor Thom. Took some time to reach here. Preah Khan ( for sure nothing to do with Mughals) is far away from the rest of the attractions in the Angkor complex, particularly from Angkor Wat.But it's worth visiting this . This is yet another temple complex and there is a... More

If you visit Angkor Wat first thing in the morning, go here next and avoid the crowd. It's in great shape, though there are some trees that have given it that "Tomb Raider" look.

This temple is slightly away from the other main temples. But it is definitely worth the drive / walk / cycling. Deep in history. More importantly, amazing to see the ruins and in particular how trees are growing on the structure. Breath-taking.

Only temple with a 2 storeyed library. Here you can see remnants of Buddha statue on a pre-existing Hindu Shiva Pedastal. The result of the communist revolution.

I've been to Preah Khan on 5.12.2016. This is one of the temples where I was pleasantly impressed. I didn't expect that. The area of the temple is quite extensive, there are a lot of interesting places to take a photo. Opening hours 7:30 - 17:30. There are low ceilings, so be careful and watch your head. 5.12.2016 побывал в... More

this is definetly a must-see temple. it is huge and not overcrowded. so you can really spend a lot of time, at your own pace and go into every single corner. this is where we began from, and could really get a good feeling about the detailed works and general temple structure.

I was bicycling with a local and we entered from the jungle path. I had visited here years ago but from the "front". My orientation was off until I spotted the huge tree on the wall. This temple is a delight. Less 'organized' than most and required a lot of climbing about. Also less crowded and the jumbled slabs of... More

Preah Khan is another amazing temple! Preah Khan is built in the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. The temple is flat in design, with a basic plan of successive rectangular galleries around a Buddhist sanctuary. Like the nearby Ta Prohm, Preah Khan has been left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among... More
