“Worth a quick look if you're there.”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

As everyone has said, this is a model of the famous Cambodian temple complex. While the attention to detail is amazing and it's well worth spending a few minutes admiring if you are already in the Royal Palace compound, a model remains a model and it certainly wouldn't justify a visit on its own - especially at 400 baht entrance fee to the Palace grounds. (which includes access to the magnificent Wat Phra Kaeo)

“I have only seen pictures of the real one”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

I can only compare the mini replica of Angkor Wat to that of the real one I have seen in photographs, but the attention to detail was absolutely stunning and was amazed at the replica, which is hidden behind the stairs leading to one of the temples near the entry of the Grand Palace / Wat Phra Kaew complex.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

It's a shame that you can't get a view of it from above. Very cool that it was built in the first place.

“Very accurate model”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

If you have been to Angkor then you will appreciate the detail in the model. It is located in the royal palace but is not the sole reason to go there as it can be viewed in a minute or so.

“A great surprise for us inside the Grand Palace premisses”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

While visiting the grand palace in September 2011, we saw the replica of the Angkor Wat the largest Hindu temple in the world. I have seen the Angkor wat only in the picture and found it very fascinating. As a Nepali national, I was very curious about it. When I saw the miniature of the Angkor Wat, I was really very surprised never thought to see its replica inside the grand palace premises. Though small but it satisfy at least who can not visit Siem Reap Cambodia.......
