A must see. fairly small but amazing. The trees are interfering the temples and give an overall impression of human powers vs nature i long term. You have to walk to end of the site where to seen the most picturesque sections.

All the temples in the Angkor area are amazing and were a once in a lifetime visit for us. Incredible to think how long ago these carvings were made and how clear they still are today.

Very small but beautiful temple. But temple is surrounded by tree as it is carved inside jungle. But beautiful as other temple in Angok Ciy. U need less than 1 hr maybe 30 mins to visit the temple and this place is very less crowded.
