“Steep climb but well worth the effort”
Review of Pre Rup

Ranked #26 of 137 things to do in Siem Reap
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2018

Pre Rup was the last stop on our 2nd day touring the temples. It’s Hindu in origin so the architecture and carvings are different to the predominately Buddhist temples we’d been seeing. The steps are really steep so the climb up to the top is hard going but well worth it once you get there. Coming down was easier because we found wooded stairs with a handrail off to the left side that you can’t see from the front entrance.

Pre Rup-is a Hindu temple, built as the state temple of Khmer king. Temple on a mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction. Pretty steep but still do-able with much caution. Popular place to watch the sunset. The most striking feature of the Pre Rup-temple are the three large towers on either side of the main entrance. Part of a Grand Circuit Tour

Pre Rup consists of a pyramid-shaped temple-mountain with the uppermost of the three tiers carrying five lotus towers. The steps going up the highest tier are pretty steep but still do-able with much caution. The most striking feature of the Pre Rup temple are the three large towers on either side of the Eastern entrance, the main entrance of the temple. Some would prefer watching the sunset from this temple, hence there could be larger crowd in the evening.

This is one of the few intact temples in Angor Park.

The Sunset from this temple looks very beautiful.There is a very heavy crowd in the evening to watch the sunset, so it's better to secure your place early with your loved ones.Grab some drinks and snacks from the vendors nearby and you are all set.To spend some quality time.

There was a steep climb up the temples but lovely sunset at the top. Was quite crowded in the middle of April.
