An older temple outside of Battambang in the same style as Angkor Wat. A beautiful pagoda and old stupa here as well Worth seeing. A small charge for tourists.

This is your typical “temple visit” in Cambodia unless you visit it during the new year (which is when I went). The , it is a wild festival! There is a modern temple, along with ruins and Buddha statues. You have to pay an entrance...More

These ruins are very interesting but don't expect something like Angkor Wat or Angkor Tom. The site needs restauration but as our guide told us there were no funds to do so. Still a top site in Battambang in my opinion.

This old temple simply doesn't compare to so many of the others I've visited. The state of the ruins is a real shame. It's nice to get out and about though and enjoy a quick moment scrambling around

We loved seeing this site. A large Buddha is an understatement. The old crumbling temple is fun to see. So is the new Pagoda and the giant Buddha. Worth the time.
