    Has a bit of magic
    This temple was really fascinating. Dedicated to the father of the King and doesn't have a lot of intricate carvings on the walls A lot of heads missing which is sad and this temple doesn't look as restored as some others, but well worth a look. Has a sound chamber which was unexpected. A guard here assisted with a special light photo which I though was a scam. But it does look like you are holding a ball of light in your hand when there was nothing there.

    Feeling like an explorer
    Maybe not as famous as other temples, but it is stunning. Each new chamber brings new discoveries. Artwork, carvings, doorways, collapsed walls, tree roots, you name it. Walking around it, you feel like an explorer. There is plenty to photograph too. Just watch your step as it's easy to stumble. As it's not as crowded as other places, you can better enjoy its quiet beauty, so do not miss it!

The temple was less complex than the others. Since most of its buildings has collapsed. But the hallway design was very unique & beautiful.

Preah Khan is a beautiful temple with long interior spaces and great architecture. The parts that have fallen into ruin are getting reclaimed by the jungle---beautiful! The walk from the parking area is a pretty straight shot---otters ran right across our path to play in a stream that was just to one side! And there is a cool bridge lined with (now mostly headless) men just as you reach the temple. This one was pretty empty, even in the middle of the day. Except for a cute stray dog who was trying to take a nap... Check it out, we liked this one. We spent about 45 minutes.

This one's included with the Angkor ticket---as you drive around the Angkor Thom area, you periodically reach checkpoints where you have to show your Angkor ticket, but it's easy to move from place to place.

This is now one of my favourite temples!

It is absolutely massive, to see it all you would need to dedicate a couple of hours.

Make sure to look at the library - it’s a highlight.

One of the more interesting and large temples in the big circuit, this should be included in a visit if you are spending more than 1 day in the Angkor park. Lots of maze like corridors make this a fun temple to explore, with fewer crowds than the main temples in Angkor.

Been to this temple six times on three separate visits to Siem Reap,it seems to have a very special feeling different to all the others,I allways get dropped off at the East gate and walk through and picked up at the West gate,it is a long walk but so worth it.I find the area around the south gate the most peacefull as not many visitors make it there,Will visit again I am sure next time I a in town.
