This site is unique since it is distinguished by the pink sandstone color of the structures. The detailed carvings are beautiful. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Sri (Khmer - Srei.) It is smaller than the other temples and is located 12 miles...More

Stunning pink sandstone temple. Built and carved by women. Single storey “because ladies aren’t strong enough to lift the stone” ... but that said, the carvings are the most intricate and “the most care was taken”... in the jungle, surrounded by rice paddies and lily...More

This wonderful temple is known as the “jewel of Khmer art.” It is small but just breathtaking in its beauty. The highly detailed carvings are very well preserved and it was my favorite among the temples I visited in Angkor.

One of the most beautiful temples in Angor! Try to be early to avoid big buses filled with tourists.

The colour and details in the carving will take your breath away. Gratefully it is not as huge as the other temples so you can slowly view the intricate craft on almost every inch of the temple

Definitely go to this one as well, it is one of the better ones in my opinion. Be aware though that this one is not easily accessible and may be difficult for some.

Not the most well known temple, nor the largest, but we found the number of people visiting to be reasonable and therefore we could enjoy every part of this amazing piece of history. And for photos it's perhaps the best of the lot!!

It is the farthest temple off angkor wat, but it worth the visiting. The colour of the stones is so beautiful and the carvings are amazing. It is really a gem in the forest. Landmine museum in the same area as the temple, so if...More

This Wat/temple is much smaller than the others we saw, but the carvings on the stone here were exquisite, and really elaborate. What it lacks in size it makes up for in the carvings. If you get a chance and have the time, really a...More

I visited Banteay Srei in the late afternoon. It was not too crowded and certainly worth the trip. As the sun was going down in the afternoon the temple glowed in shades of terracotta and pink. The carving is a joy to see and walking...More

We were there in the late afternoon (4 p.m.) in March on a slightly cloudy day but even then I would have been hard-pressed to call the sandstone colour "pink", more like a "pale reddish-brown". We were supposed to go back... More

I think you have the option to do more than one temple all together. Check on line... The ticket that I got was around U$D 62 y was for more than 3 temples.
