“If you have Time”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

If you are near Baphuon then i think you might as well visit this place but there isnt really anything special about it. You get to climb steep steps and get a view from the top but i wouldn't spend more than 20 minutes here.

“As Long as You're in the Neighborhood”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

While I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to see this structure, it's certainly worth stopping for a visit if you're already in Angkor Thom.

It's located right next to Baphuon and the Terrace of the Elephants, making it very easy to get to, but since it isn't really one of the main attractions there are no crowds -- always a plus! It's somewhat of a steep climb to the top, but quite do-able.

“One of the Larger Temples in the Angkor Thom Complex”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Located in front of the one-time place, this temple is not especially impressive in its carvings or its relatively small area, however, it is one of the taller free-standing temples, requiring a significant set of stairs to get to the top. It is also located further from the road meaning there are relatively few tourists and less of a crowd. If you are already exploring the Angkor Thom complex it is probably worth your while to stick your head in here.

“Largely ruined - in Angkor Thom”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

The temple/royal palace looks OK from the road but it is largely in ruins with no worthwhile surviving detailed sculpture. Built in pyramid style.

Save your time to look at Elephant Terrace

“Uninspiring temple”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

A peaceful diversion from the many temples around, it does not see the usual flock of tourists.
There's not much left of the original temple and a steep climb will give you good memories.
Don't spend too much time here, it's not worth it.
