It was monsoon time and the entire monument was under water

But the walk to the monument and also to see the lake expanse around it where the water carpeted all the vegetations for miles around.

As I visited shortly after the rainy season finished, there was amazing views of the baray as you approached this temple. It also meant that some of the architecture was hidden by the water. Nevertheless, despite the tourists (this is a small area and so even just 20 or 30 other tourists can make it feel crowded) it is quite... More

The walk towards the temple is very nice. A wooden walkway over the water leads to the small Island temple, which is fenced off. Because of the special location absolute worth the visit.

After a while all the temples in the grand and small circuit may begin to look similar, but not Neak Pean. The first thing that takes your breath away is the walk to the temple.

Firstly, the temple itself is very small surrounded by a lake, the only one like this! Secondly, the walkway which... More

It's good to visit this place during rainy season. You will see water of Preah Khan Baray around you. Wood walkway creates a scenic photography. This place represents Lake Anavatapta with two Nagas associated in Hindu mythology.

The walkway towards the temple is just beautiful. The lake at the side of the small wooden walkway offers some great scenery to take photo. The temple itself is very small with a Naga (dragon) sculpture.

Neak Pean is one of the most amazing places in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. It was a temple that builds in the region of king Jayavarman VII.
