Unlike other temples like Angkor Wat, the Bayon and Ta Prohm, this temple is calm and quiet with very less crowds and lot of photogenic places inside. It has got a lot of chambers and each one is really beautiful. One can see the elephant Buddha here where Buddha sitting on the throne carried by elephants can be seen. A nice place just near the Ta Prohm temple. Souvenir shops here are good and reasonably priced. Less people more bargain and ultimately good price for most of the handicraft materials. Nice place...

This is a Buddhist temple with a lot of chambers. It served as a monastery from time to time.
Today it’s in ruins. It has not been restored. It had a lot of beautiful carvings. As were too tired in the heat of Angkor region,we could not devote much time. The guide was very enthusiastic to show us more , but we decided to end our tour of Angkor here.

We walked a short distance (about 5 mins) from Ta Prohm to this place which was quieter without much crowds. It seems like it is still a functioning place of worship, and it is easier to take photos without other tourists around.

I do hope they don't over-restore this site. It's wonderfully eerie to see it only partially restored, with barriers protecting the hobbledy stones not yet re-assembled. This lack of sanitisation to this relatively small site means there are fewer visitors than to many so making it all the more pleasant to get around.

The entrance gate carvings, intricate sandsone in the temple and narrow corridors make the area all the more interesting. Embedded trees too !

Although this temple is on the "outskirts" of the main, core area by Angkor Wat temple, it's absolutely worth a visit. It's one of the most intact temples meaning that you really get the sense of rooms and with roofs and covered hallways (galleries). It's supposedly the temple with the most carvings of females but I saw female carvings at most of the temples. This one did have some pretty remarkable carving probably because many of them remain totally protected from the environment. Don't skip this one!
