There were no tourists during our visit here. It is a small site with an active altar. There is a one dollar entrance fee if you arrive by the adjacent pagoda with a large Buddha statue. There is another rear entrance from the back road.

If you are in the area it is worth going to see this temple but it really is in poor condition and isn't as good as the temples in the Siem Reap area which aren't that far away.

a small temple more ancient than those at Ankor. Situated right next to a large buddha and a modern temple. Definitely worth the trip from Battambang centre to catch.

This as a bit remote place was very impressive. We paid a local police man 10000 KHR for entrance and having a look after our bike. A one thousand year old structure, surprisingly still standing and a very romantic place. Loved to see the structure...More

Visited here in the morning, you'll need a tuk tuk or motorbike to get here comfortably. Learned a lot from our driver who guided us through the Wat.
