A small temple on the larger temple circuit, worth a visit and takes about 20 minutes. Like the nearby Preah Khan and Ta Prohm the temple was left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins.

Nice Wat, very manageable for a solo visit. Typical, but special in its way. Enjoyed looking at carvings and noting the scale difference between it and Thon and the main Angkor Wat. Charming.

A very tranquil temple, much smaller than most on the circuit with beautiful trees surrounding it. Take time to walk around the outside and appreciate the wonderful area as well as the temple. The tree doorway at the end is not unique but truly splendid,...More
