Our guide took us here for a stop on our drive from Banteay Srey to Ta Prohm. We were there at noontime, and there were very few people. It's a perfect time for taking pictures, if you're very particular about not having temple photos ruined by crowds. The view from the top is impressive! The steep stairs were quite fun to climb, but going down was quite scary. I heard it's also a great option for watching the sunset.

We had not originally planned to stop at Pre Rup as we were doing the temple circuit; later, I was so glad we had decided to stop. It's one of the less crowded temples, though a fair number of people do show up to catch the sunset (it's a nice alternative to the much more crowded Phnom Bakheng for sunsets). The view of the surrounding forest is quite nice from the top -- Pre Rup is definitely worth taking the time to stop and visit.

One of the smaller, less visited temples, Pre Rup's most distinguishing feature is its tall, grass covered towers, looking almost like hair. Be aware, the stairs are very steep and there is no railing, but the view from the top is worth the climb, and you can actually see it's sister temple, East Mebon, from the peak (East Mebon was the king's parent's temple). Some effort has been made to restore the carvings here, with marginally less success than in other areas, but there are still some lovely ones remaining.

Even though this site was in a somewhat ruinous state, it was still worth a visit. It was a fairly good size complex and fun to climb.

Pre Rup is one of the less popular temples on the grand circuit. That makes it nice to stop and see, however, there isn't a whole lot to see here. I think we were in and out I fifteen minutes. I wouldn't go out of my way to see Pre Rup, however, if you are doing the grand tour you will go right by and might as well stop in to see it.
