Unlike the other temples which are overcrowded, this temple had a peaceful feel which was just as equally amazing. Over a thousand years old but still you can see the foundation and outline of the temple.

Overshadowed by Ankor Wat, this is a must see. A beautiful temple in the Hindu style. With a guide, you learn much more than just going it alone. Nice to have information and stories to go with the visions.

The exquisite colours of this temple are stunning. There is a different history to this temple, as the focus was more for females. It is some distance from Siem Reap, but well worth the travel to experience this incredible sight.
