We came here after having seen Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm. Preah Khan was absolutely stunning, and the lack of crowds when we went made the experience that much more enjoyable. Another must-see when visiting the temples in the area.

Preah Khan means sacred sword. If Ta Prohm was dedicated to his mother, King Jayavarman VII dedicated this temple to his father Dhararandra. It's beautiful and it appears largely untouched by time or conflict. It's said the king stayed here while he was building Angkor...More

Part of the Grand circuit , this temple is largely unrestored and brings memories of Ta Prohm with trees growing right through ruins. However this is not as famous as Ta Prohm which is associated with Lara Croft.

A lessor known site but charming and quiet which allows for reflection without the usual hordes at the main sites. Go alone with a local knowledgeable guide and go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the heat. Do enjoy the journey there...More

Visiting Preak Khan seemed like Ta Prohm without the hordes of tourist. On the walk from the parking lot to Preah Khan brace yourself though because here the children are relentless in attempt to try and sell their souvenirs. They will follow you along the...More

This was the temple that King Jayavarman VII build for his Father, and if I am not wrong, he also build Ta Prom for his mother. (Will write a review of Ta Prom later). And the thing that strike me, both temple have the interesting...More
