Really after Angor Wat the other temples look small and often in disrepair. This is a nice small temple with Five towers on one terrace. It is a Hindu temple. It doesn’t take much time to visit and it wasn’t crowded

We were fortunate enough to be able to have a private dinner under the stars with our tour group here at Prasat Kravan. The temple itself is beautful and provided both a wonderful backdrop for the evening as well as a focal point of why we all were in Siem Reap. The atmosphere was tranquil, and the ruin lit up so that all of the details, which are sometime missed, were clearly on display. Definitely a “must see” if in Siem Reap.

Unique and different. Stunning carvings, very well preserved. Well worth a stop to check it out. Probably take no more than 15 mins.

This ancient Hindu temple dates from the beginning of the 10th century and was built by King Harshavarman I (or by some of his court's high officials). Five brick towers stand on a single platform. At the central tower, the cult of Lord Vishnu and a sacred "linga" positioned on a pedestal. The North tower is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi. "Prasat Kravan", also known as the "Cardamom Sanctuary", is located between the temples of "Angkor Wat" and "Banteay Kdei" and is best seen in the mornings, when the unique examples of brick bas-reliefs in the Angkor complex, depicting Hindu gods Vishnu and Lakshmi, are totally lit and visible. A quick visit and more fond memories to take home. Enjoy!

It's a small 10th-century temple consisting of five reddish brick towers on a common terrace, a Its original Sanskrit name is unknown. The modern name in Khmer, "Prasat Kravan", means artabotrys odoratissimus temple. The temple was dedicated to Vishnu in 921
  The only interest lies in the bas-reliefs dedicated to the god Vishnu which are located on the interior walls.

My one day itinerary was prepared to cover Angkor attractions/ temples in this order: Siem Reap- Angkor- Bayon- Baphuon- TaKeo- Ta Prohm- Banteay Kdei- Srah Srang- Siem Reap along with other smaller attractions. After visiting Banteay Kdei and Srah Srang in the evening around 5.00 pm have crossed Prasat Kravan temple while returning to Siem Reap town. Have watched from outside as the whole day was already spent visiting all the main attractions in Angkor.

Anyone visiting Angkor for one day can have this temple in itinerary to visit while returning back to Siem Reap town in the evening.

Prasat Kravan is different in many ways from the other temples -
it is smaller than other temples,
built of bricks rather than sandstone and
has 5 towers in a row on the same platform.

Built in early 10th century by King Harshavarman 1st, the temple was restored by French and is in a good condition now. The central tower is Vishnu temple and the one on northern end is Lakshmi temple. Few carvings can be seen inside the sanctum.

We visited in the evening and found that they were preparing for a show here with a stage, audio speakers and a dinner setting.

The small temple along the way to Sras Srang which has a great building architecture with five main tower where I believe you feel different when you arrived here. The compound of this temple is small but I’m sure you will be able to capture such a brilliant photos with this building. The pond nearby there is having a pretty lily flower pink and white and those all are absolutely fantastic nature. Don’t miss it.

We visited this Temple in the evening with our tour company Scenic for our farewell dinner. We did not know what to expect and were blown away as the evening unfolded. We were greeted at the bus by a torch parade of warriors who lead us up the path to pre dinner drinks. The temple was lit beautifully and the it was all in traditional Cambodian style. The dancers customs were stunning and the entertainment was most enjoyable. The area for dining was land out like a wedding with beautiful white linens. The food was of a very high standard too for such an event. It was a fabulous evening and one of the best organised events I’ve been to in a long time.
