This is one of the most beautiful temples in Angkor archaeological park and highly recommended. Not many tourists going here so it is a relaxing visit.

This's a 10th century Hindu temple devoted to Lord Shiva. The entire temple complex was created with hard white sand stone with quite intricate carvings. The title Banteay Srei implies "citadel of beauty" and it's really a gorgeous creation to relish. This's not a huge temple like some other Angkor temples though it is beauty differs and shouldn't be missed.

Banteay Srei "Citadel of Women" can be as spectacular live as it's in pictures! Keep your camera activity in force that is full as these temples through the tenth century are exceptional. Sticking to the stretch of temples, you will be surrounded by music that is live & stores. There is a track off on the right which enables you to have country side views of grain fields and also water buffalo. The entire appeal is spectacular. Do visit Banteay Srei.

A different flavor to the temples which are mainly grey sandstone. This is a little pinkish which gives it a nice hue to it.

This temple is a bit more than 30kms out of Siem Reap but is well worth the trip out to see it. Set right in amongst the trees, it’s a beautiful temple with intricate carvings and incredibly detailed statutes. Because of its remoteness in relation to the main temples of the Angkor complex, the crowds don’t overrun it. Do yourself a favor and make the effort to get out and see this beautiful little temple
