One of the beautifully carved temples of the grand circuit. It requires climbing of stairs for better views.We went there in the afternoon. It was less crowded.

Beautiful temple near Angkor Wat. We spent the first day going to the "main" temples (Angkor Wat and other nearby temples) and the second day we went to more "out of the way" temples like Pre Rup. We actually enjoyed the second day more because there were fewer people at each temple and so we had more time to explore.

This place is a bit of trek from the main part of Angkor Archaeological Park, but well worth it if you want to beat the crowds and see a beautiful sunset.

climbing up for better view. however, it isn't a must to go if you have a limited time only. Normally the driver would take you there if you are travelling in the giant circuit. Anyway, still a good place to take photos.

A tall temple where there is a good platform for a photo and I hear its great for sunset! Unfortunately our day was cloudy so didn't enjoy the maximum benefit. You get a good view of the jungle also, fantastic.

Definitely not a must do, but we stopped by for a quick visit and, after climbing the steep stairs, we sat at the top for a rest and it was a great place to people watch as well as admiring the view.

Visit just before sunset. Nice sunset over the forest. A bit crowded, but possible to get a nice spot.The temple may be hard to climb from the main entrance, but there are proper stairs just around the corner.

Pre Rup is a temple mountain located in the southern bank of East Baray was the State Temple of the King Rajendravarman.Like all state temples it was initially located in the centre of the city capital but presently there are no signs of existence of its outer boundaries.The temple has a pyramid like structure,squarish in shape,rises steeply in three tiers...

The Pre Rup (aka "crematorium") was our very first temple that our guide (Jet) took us to. It has got never-ending stairs that they almost go to heaven. It is a very ancient temple - built around the 9th century and is around 9km away from the infamous Angkor Wat temple.

Crowded at sunset but a better alternative to Phnom Baking which is totally overrun. If you have limited time, then purchase ticket at 5pm for next day visit. You can use that same ticket to see the sunset immediately after purchasing ticket. Just hire a tuk tuk for the evening.
