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.

There are some great photo opportunities for carvings and roots here. It is kind of a small temple, but is still worth visiting for 1/2 hour. Enjoy.

Make sure you walk to the end of this temple since it will get you a great view of a tree growing all over the temple

A small temple on the larger temple circuit, worth a visit and takes about 20 minutes. Like the nearby Preah Khan and Ta Prohm the temple was left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins.
