This temples is small, I came here and spent 15 mins. The style is similar to the one found in Angkor Wat but you dont see has much art. For me is not a must, if you have the time to visit go but if you dont you are good.

Banteay Samre is an interesting little temple further out of the way in The Angkor Archeological Park. It is typically less crowded than other temples and is just as interesting.

The temple has not much to offer and can be skipped as it does not offer any thing new or different and a work of stones not much of art work its better to avoid this and spend more time in other important temples

A small temple, in the same style as Angkor Wat, but much smaller (and less overrun by visitors). It's a lovely little place, very atmospheric, and well restored

Built in the early-mid 12th century this temple complex is a bit away from all the other Angkor temples so it is quiet and lacks huge crowds. This makes for a very pleasant temple complex to visit. It's built in the style of Angkor Wat but much smaller. The quality of the carvings and stonework are very good. I read... More

We came here on our private tour to experience smaller, unseen by most temples. Needs some care and attention as it is is bad condition but you can still appreciate it former beauty. Someone said it was like a smaller Angkor Wat and tgey are spot on. Try and visit.

If you want a chance to explore a temple that is off the regular tourist route through Angkor Wat, but you don't have time to head out to the further temples, definitely consider Beanteay Samre. It's like an Angkor Wat in miniature, and it is really lovely.

This was the most quiet temple we went too, barely any tourist. We had the temple almost all to ourselves, so we were able to take lots of pictures without anyone else in it! Selfie galore!
