Dedicated to the father of King Jayavarmen the VII this fantastic Buddhist temple seemed to stretch on forever. Once again there are trees growing on the temple walls and roof. Keep a look out for the Buddhist carvings which have been changed over to Hinduism. At the centre of the temple a small dome has been built. This temple is quiet compared to the other bigger more famous places. But do not miss out on this fantastic temple take time to walk around and take it in.

Probably ranks number 4 as a must see temple behind Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm & Bayon. Incredible large temple complex that is interesting indoor and outdoor sections and is usually never too crowded

Less crowded than other temples in archaeological park. Easy to navigate because the pathways are very straightforward.

This tour encompasses about five temples and most tuk tuk charge about $3 extra over the Short Tour which is Angkor Wat. The temples vary and there is even one accessible across a walkway over water.

It's a long day so pace yourself. Starting early is my recommendation.

Sundays are very popular for the locals as we found out. There was a fun run as well as elephant rides which we hadn't seen before.

Well worth your time and effort. We found the best rehydration was having a cool refreshing coconut. At $1 it was wonderful. Try some of the local food as well, you won't be disappointed.
