The royal pool is close to East Mebon and Pre Rub. Across from the water on the temple side, there are a few restaurants. If one stops for lunch, one might as well check out the royal pool, where the king used to swim and possibly bath. It is a giant piece of water. After hundreds of years, this piece of water is just like a regular pool. Without knowing it was the royal pool, one would probably miss it and just pass by.

Nothing fantastically special about it. Just a good spot to stop by quickly for a view of the water and a few pictures.

Bring mosquito repellent! A ton of mosquitos live by the water!

Very symbolic with the platform overlooking the wonderful lake and greenery surrounding the shore and paths that invite you to take a break, since this is not a large site. There is a general dichotomy that moves from a strong to tender attitude. The representation of the serpents - a Garuda riding a three headed example. The two lions overlooking the lake access from the platform, shaped as a cross and serpentine balustrades surrounding. It's uniqueness is the interesting part.

This is a nice place but quickly done on your way from one temple to another. Nothing special. Maybe for sunrise but not during the day.

Driving around the temples is usually just one treelined path after another, and then you come across Srah Srang

It is cruciform flanked by Naga which end with the upright head of a serpent, mounted by a Garuda with its wings unfurled. The steps that lead down to the water are flanked by two guardian lions.
