Very small but beautiful temple. But temple is surrounded by tree as it is carved inside jungle. But beautiful as other temple in Angok Ciy. U need less than 1 hr maybe 30 mins to visit the temple and this place is very less crowded.

lovely little temple to visit. It is beautiful. However, If you dont have much time, maybe miss this one. Preah Kahn and/or Ta Phrom are in the same vein. But it isnt far away from Preah Khan, so you can always have a quick visit

Relatively crowd free it you get there in the morning, this provides a great photo opportunity of a tree growing around the temple gate. Temple is shaded which makes for a nice experience also.

It isn't very big but still impressive. While we have the driver with us, we won't miss it in the giant circle. Stopping by for about 30 minutes would be enough.
