If one has only one day in SR, one should visit Angkor Wat and Bayon. But if one has at least two days, one has to put Preăh Khan on the itinerary!
It is a large complex with very much less of a crowd. The major structure is preserved, though many pieces were broken and fallen. It is being restored by a team on the spot.
The temple has a special figure - it has a Roman style structure tucked in the back. Rumor has it that back in ancient time, the Romans had made it all the way to Asia, the Khmer empire, which is the current Cambodia. Archeologists have found Roman coins in lost treasure discovered in modern time, so it is possible that the Romans had visited the Khmer empire by sea. The structure itself has giant columns and is of a rectangular shape. One cannot miss this piece of work if one is interested in architecture.
Besides the Roman structure, I also recommend one check out the Hall of Dancers. One will find many beautiful goddess “Apsara” mural here, well designed and decorated. One can imagine the glories dance parties that happened back in time.
Highly recommend this temple to everyone! Recommend time to spend is 2-3 hours with a knowledgeable tour guide!
