Pre Rup is less known than the awesome Agkor Wat. A group of us visited before dawn and waited for the sunrise. As it did it lit up the sandstone. The temple was built in the late 10th century. The carvings are still in very good condition. A degree of fitness is required to climb to the upper levels (a little taxing on the thighs). It would be good to visit any time of the day, but sunrise is very special.

the last of my tour, t visited Pre Rup temple. It given me a lot of pleasant memories. with three the top of a tower, the temple quite same with the zoom out of Angkor Vat temple. although, It was destroy by rain and erode, it still remain the antique style. the most impressive of its is that you can climb in the highest location and view the landscape. maybe it make you tired but it worthy. I fell very luck when I climbed in the top and enjoyed the sunrise.it so nice. I fell that I was trying myself and achieve something. Fantastic!
I took a lot of picture to save this time.

We bought a 3 day pass to the temples, completing the small circuit on our first day and the big circuit on our second. This temple was part of the big circuit and it is arguably one of the lesser temples of that circuit. The staircase is very steep but worth climbing as the views from the top are stunning.

This temple isn't a must see, but if completing the big circuit it's worth climbing the stairs and simply soaking in the view!

if you've been to ruolus temples or western baray then you can skip this one as i did. nothing too different from the other two. however if you didn't go to those two then it is worth a stop for half an hour or an hour

We got there around 5:30am or so and managed to enjoy the sunrise with the place all to ourselves. It's an under-rated sunrise spot and you get to see the sun rising over the horizon from the top level of the temple - and before the folks camping out at Angkor Wat!
