This miniature temple north from main Angkor attractions definitely worth a visit! Tip: try schedule your arrival as early as you can - may be before 7:30 am since by 8 am the place was already crowded by large groups of Chinese tourists who made lines to picture themselves in each doorway of the temple, giving us hard times to...

Smaller by comparison to other temples, the carvings are so decorative and so interesting to catch Vishnu and Shiva and try to get a perspective into the past.

Banteay Srei is a 10th Century temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. It is built of red sandstone which made it easier for the artisan to carve the gorgeous depictions which are still easily observable. It is called the jewel of Khmer art. The site consists of three concentric rectangular enclosures. The innermost enclosure is the sanctuary which has... More

Of all the Angkor temples, this one is not to be missed for its well preserved and Depp carvings. They've withstood aging very well. However, the temple is small and the tourists are many, making it difficult to get good photos or even to move through it at a leisurely pace.

Thoroughly enjoyed our walk through this beautiful temple. So well preserved and the attention to detail was beyond our expectations.

We visited Banteay Srei around 10am in the morning and were overwhelmed by bus loads of tourists. Visiting this temple used to be a delightful experience because it is in a beautiful setting, and the stone carvings are magnificent. Now, you can't stand still without being jostled by others. Very disappointing.

This Temple is far out of town, so best get an early start - also to avoid the busloads of tourists that arrive from about 9 am. I enjoyed the intricate art work and that the centre of the Temple is cordoned off, so plenty of opportunity for good photographs. The surrounding area is also beautiful, with walkways to assist...

These temples are not the grandiose large constructions, but they make up for and surpass with the amazing carvings. Simply amazing and a must see.

Came to Banteay Srei after visiting Pbal Spean and I was amazed at the structures. It is quite a small site compared to Angkor, but there are extra things to see/do like the botanical garden and a boat ride (around what looked like a swamp). Make sure you have an Angkor Wat ticket as this covers Banteay Srei entry. Still... More

This temple is magical, surrounded by it's most with water lilies. The carvings are so detailed it is impossible to believe they are so old and were covered by the jungle. Do make sure your visit is either early in the day or later in the afternoon to avoid crowds.
