The temple is in sandstone and built by indravarman I. The intricate carvings and the gopuras are symmetrical. Recommended time is 30 mins.

What a beautiful little temple with 5-6 little towers out of stone that has taken all kinds of nice coulours. We were so lucky for getting there when not many visitors were around. We got amazing pictures out of this temple.

The lovely pink sandstone temples were undergoing a little renovation at the rear but it didn't spoil anything. There was a well preserved sacred bull statue looking towards the temple with 2 lions guarding each of the 3 temples.

Part of the Roluos Group, great stucco decoration and inscriptions. Just here is the wonderful Little Angels: 25 orphans of all ages led by Director Nhek, their education includes leather carving to give them a skill for the future. 20% of sales goes into private accounts for them.

Ideal place to visit if you are catching the sunrise at Bakong. I was literally the only person there most of the time and it was lovely to have this little temple to myself. Very attractive brick towers on grass, set against a background of trees - no particular clambering required. Many interesting carvings and a nice opportunity to see... More

While the temple is amazing, please do not overlook the "Little Angels Orphanage" on the other side of the road. The kids are schooled and do excellent leather artwork, mostly for puppet theater. Very friendly kids and teachers.

After doing tours in Siem Reap and the surrounding area we went to this temple area and were surprised by how quiet it was. While quiet, it was still nice to view these temples and not feel rushed. Give this place a try, it's worth the drive.

It's near prasat Bakong, quite easy to accede. This temple has well-preserved lintels and details about the door, door jamb, colonnettes. I myself get used to hindu gods so this temple lintels mostly tell stories about these. This temple is in the package to see nearby Prasat Bakong, the pyramid.

This is part of the Rolous group, from the late 9th century. The structures and layout at Prah Ko are virtually identical to that found at nearby Lolei - but here they are much better preserved. I would suggest skipping Lolei. Be sure to continue down the same road for much larger Bakong temple area from the same era.
