This temple is not crowded and is less visited by tourist, I dont know why. This temple is gorgeous full of elephants and art. I will recommend you stop here, it would only take 40 mins of your time. Do it!

Although all the places I went to in Siem Reap, I personally enjoyed visiting this specific site because it wasn't as crowded as the others. I was able to find me a quiet secluded place here to just relax and soak in everything without being interrupted by other visitors. Also the Elephant Statues at the corners were a nice change...

Once you have admired the elephants admire the tiny holes in the stone used to place jewellery/incense, the carvings and the inside of the towers where you can gaze up to the sky. A large site best viewed from the top this is another beautiful temple but due to its location is significantly quieter than others.

This temple is less crowded by tourists and you can have it for you alone and look for hidden details. It is made of a reddish color and you must climd some steep steps but then you have a good look over the surrounding area. The elephants are in quite good condition. We liked it there.

Spent about 1/2 hour here walking around and taking photos. There are some cool elephant carvings. I am always amazed at how tight the bricks of the walls are stacked together. There is no way that you could slide a piece of paper between bricks in most cases. Enjoy.

We visited this temple on day 3 of our visit and enjoyed the large elephant statues that are in really good shape at this temple

Along the larger temple circuit. The sculpture at the East Mebon is varied and exceptional, including two-meter-high free-standing stone elephants at corners of the first and second tiers.

There was one intact elephant statue at the far end where we took a picture. Other than that, we also didn't see anything significant here. If you are short in time, I'd definitely skip this one.

Loved walking around this Temple with the elephants on every corner. An interesting feature is all the holes in the waklls to support the plaster. A much smaller Temple

We went here as a side trip because we're too early for sunset viewing at Pre Rup. Though this is not as big as other temples, I enjoyed it here because of less crowd. I was able to explore and look on the details of the temple.
