Review of Wat Ek Phnom

Wat Ek Phnom
Ranked #14 of 52 things to do in Battambang

Reviewed 17 November 2013

Lovely Angkorian ruins next to a current-day wat and enormous Buddha statue. The ruins of Wat Ek Phnom cost a couple of dollars for foreigners and in the wet season the site is a bit muddy. Looks out onto a lovely lily pond. There's no information about the site once you're there.

If you're on a moto, use Wat Ek Phnom as your destination and then keep on driving to explore nearby fishing communities and rice fields.

The temple wasn't much to see but what was interesting was that the local farmers were drying the rice on the court yard, kids were playing games with their thongs and people were praying in the prayer hall.
