Lovely little temple with the story about the Budda who's life is told in murals around the outside wall. He resides in the very old temple in the complex. It's a very peaceful... read more

It was a nice colorful pagoda to visit while in Seam Reap but nothing different from most Buddhist temples in other places.

I really do love this particular little temple. Quite small compared to some of the large ruined temples of the Angkor complex, and even to some of the famous Thai temples, it nevertheless has a lovely atmosphere and is a good place to sit and rest, or to stroll around enjoying the colourful paintings of the Buddha's life (which are...

Lovely little temple with the story about the Budda who's life is told in murals around the outside wall. He resides in the very old temple in the complex. It's a very peaceful and tranquil place in the middle of the madness that is Siem Reap...!!!

It was a nice place to be. The temple has some beautifully made sculptures that are picture worthy. Being so near to the hustle and bustle, it is surprisingly a quiet place. Take a chance and visit this place. It is not overly crowded and perhaps it can offer you a sense of peace after trekking the market. ☺

Very nice Bhuddist temple which tells the story of Bhudda, with statues and paintings. Big Bhudda in the main temple is worth a look, as is all the statues. Leave an offering to Bhudda.

Situated on the banks of the Siem Reap River this temple is right in the heart of the town. The grounds are well maintained and litter free (unlike Wat Bo). It doesn't take long to explore but it is a pleasant twenty minute diversion away from the phrenetic town centre

A nice place to visit when wandering around Siem Reap. Within the grounds of the temple there are nice buildings and different statues. Worth a visit.

A quaint little site in the middle of a busy city. The statues were nice and colourful and it wasn't busy. Not a whole lot to see but would recommend if you're walking past.

This is more like a Buddha/temple compound. There is, what I must assume, a series of greatly illustrated art storyboards that only the Cambodians can read. If you are really interested in the 30 or so storyboards find a guide or a local to explain it for you. Inside the gardens and well maintained grounds are the crypts of many... More
