Absolutely beautiful!!

This was our favorite temple complex. The combination of the color of the stones and very intricate carving is mesmerizing. A must see if in Siem Reap.

This temple is about 40 ks from Siem reap. We took tuk tuk fro $25 which us great value. Also had a lovely lunch there. Much nicer than the food at Angkor Wat. These temples are in a different colour stone and are really gorgeous. Well worth the trip if YouTube the time. Drive out is good.

A little far (some 25 km) from the city centre of Siem Reap, the temple is definitely wealth visiting. The fine stone carving, particularly the goddess images are the main foci.

This site has been fully renovated and to its best been put back to together when time left it behind. This temple is what the tour guide described as a regional temple not as big but just as impressive with lots of details and carvings. The pink stone really gives it a beautiful tone to the structure. The stone carvings... More

Beautiful temple. The carving is the best to be seen on any of the temples and for this reason it is said that it was done by women. Some very well preserved/restored carvings.

It is so amazing that this and other temples were built so many years ago and discovered within the forests. This is another temple of interest and history.

After Angkow Wat any other temple pails into insignificance. However it is well worth the visit to experience another style and time in history

Such a difference from Angor Wat. Less crowds, people nice and polite, not pushy. I thought my shorts were long enough but they weren't so one of the staff loaned me her scarf to put around as a sarong. Can spend as much time as you want viewing each stunning edifice. Peaceful, spiritual. Don't miss this experience!

This place was swarmed with tourists, but I can see why. The carving is so pretty and delicate, which made it very different from other temples. The visitor center actually was also quite nice, with some informative timelines of the temples versus other famous structures.

The extra hour out to Bateay Srei is definitely worth the trip. The carvings are exquisite. There is also lots to see along the way.
