Yes, the front gate of this complex is shut tight but there are many other entrances to use. Lots of construction still ongoing and part of the complex looks like a rubbish tip. Many of the buildings are covered with scaffolding and some of the...More

Lovely temple and grounds - probably my favourite inside the main city area of Siem Reap. From terracotta monk statues to a pagoda grave yard which is quite something! It was supposed to be close when we went but just walked in through a large...More

I visited Wat Bo temple in April but it is all closed for renovation. Looks like it will take awhile. Off the beaten track. It seems some other reviewers have got confused with Wat Preah Prom Rath temple.

Main Temple with wall painting still under renovation. Doors are locked, but we managed to get it opened by one monk after searching the right person. All the young monks were busy with their phones, some taking selfies, and did not even see me for...More
