So called because of the pink shades of sand stone, this temple has amazingly intricate carvings depicting time of the Hindu gods. These carvings are so intricate they seem to be as if in wood. However they're sandstone. Clearly protected from the force of nature...More

Each temple in the Angkor complex is unique and beautiful in its own way. This temple, also known as Lady Temple, has a beauty like none other. Made from red and yellow sandstone, it lierally glows in the sunlight and is breathtaking. Far away from...More

I almost didn’t go to Banteay Srei as I’d already arranged a tour of the other 3 main temples, but going here was an absolute cannot-miss. The carvings are simply amazing. Do yourself a huge favor and do not skip this one!

This temple is unique and should be part of your to-do list. The carvings featured are very intricate and beautiful. Unfortunately, it is impossible to enjoy this site due to saturation of tourists. Measures could be taken to limit the number of visitors both for...More

Driving about 25 kms from the main group of temples of Angkor we got to the Banteay Srei temple just before sunset. The drive was pretty interesting and enjoyable as we drove through Cambodian villages with their houses on stilts. Upon arriving at the site,...More

The intricate detail of the carvings will have you enthralled. There is nothing like a temple in Siem Reap. So worth visiting. Small market and cafe on the premises. Traditional music played.

Nice temple. But a shame they have not been able to preserve the temple. It's really been neglected.

The Banteay Srei temple is really beautifull, but has to give some credit to its surroundings. It makes the complete picture of the surroundings with the temple in it to appreciate the temple at its fullest. Amazing architecture and landscaping.

We were there in the late afternoon (4 p.m.) in March on a slightly cloudy day but even then I would have been hard-pressed to call the sandstone colour "pink", more like a "pale reddish-brown". We were supposed to go back... More

I think you have the option to do more than one temple all together. Check on line... The ticket that I got was around U$D 62 y was for more than 3 temples.
