Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Takes about a 15 minute walk to get to the top, well worth it as great views. You can see Anghor Watt from the hill rising from the jungle around

Not sure why not such high reviews. We really enjoyed it and also the climb to the top and over and down again. Once again another grand temple to be seen.

Unveiling the majestic Baphuon Temple in Cambodia, visitors are transported back in time to the 11th century, where this architectural masterpiece dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva stands as a testament to the Khmer Empire's rich history and cultural heritage. The temple, built during the reign of King Udayadityavarman II, served as the state temple of Angkor Thom, showcasing intricate carvings and a towering pyramid shape that reflect the Khmer architectural style of the period. Thanks to extensive restoration efforts funded by the French government, the Baphuon Temple has been meticulously preserved, allowing travelers to witness its grandeur and historical significance firsthand. As one of the largest temples in Angkor Thom, the Baphuon offers a unique opportunity to explore Cambodia's past and architectural prowess, making it a must-see destination for those interested in ancient wonders.

This is a magnificent temple. If you have mobility issues, you can probably still walk around the perimeter and appreciate it!

Really glad we had some information from a guide book for this temple. Knowing that it was deconstructed and reconstructed as a giant puzzle before/after the Khmer Rouge was fascinating. There were very few people there which made it really enjoyable and the climb to the top was very much worth it (but really really hot and exposed to the sun the whole time).

It wasn’t even mentioned in most of the books we looked at and all the tourists seemed to skip it, but we found this to be the highlight (along with the Leper King Balcony and the South Gate) of Angkor Thom.

A smaller temple that is quite fun to climb up for views out across the Angkor Thom region. It is found near the centre of Angkor Them and 5 minutes walk away from the more famous Bayon temple, so worth stopping by when seeing that one.

Large temple on north side of Bayon temple,approached by long walkway over dry moat,walkway very impressive for the number of supporting pillars,It is possible to climb to the top of this temple on the wooden stairs that are very steep and may put some less mobile people off.Great view from the top,worth the climb,impressive for it's size.
