Great one day trip from Phnom Penh. The temple is small but beautiful. It's right up there with Angkor temples. The only downside are aggressive beggars.

The temple is not very big, but I like the whole place. The lake adjoining the temple itself is a reason for that. You can spend time in the pagoda and then have lunch in the local huts on the lake. The little girls who...More

This is a smaller version of the temples Angkor Wat. A perfect day trip from Phnom Penh. It's very cool to be around something so old, walk around and explore. The beggars are very persistent and follow you around. Just ignore them as best you...More

We had a lovely time here. Yes there were people asking for money but there was also an awesome temple with some amazing carvings. Also much easier to access than many temples as there are no steep steps. I will go back one day.

We were hesitant at first after reading all the reviews about the "harassing" kids but I am glad we went. It was a nice experience. The kids never harassed us; in fact they wished us hello from a far, very much keeping their distance. Maybe...More

I found this temple a little too ruined for me there were a few preserved spots but to make it worse we were harassed by beggars and kids wanting to sell candles from entering to exiting
