Places of Interest - Cambodia

Kutisvara temple - Siem Reap Province

Prasats in a severe state of ruin. Some carving visible. Kutisvara was mentioned in an inscription in connection with the 9th century during the reign of Jayavarman II, the founder of the Angkor Empire.

Neak Pean - Siem Reap Province

A small island temple located in the middle of the last baray (the Preah Khan Baray or Jayatataka) to be constructed by a Khmer king in the Angkor area. The central temple sits at the axis of a cross or lotus pattern of eight pools. Originally known as Rajasri, Neak Pean took its modern appellation, which means ‘coiled serpents,’ from the encoiled nagas that encircled the temple.

Phimeanakas temple - Siem Reap Province

Impressive laterite and sandstone pyramid. The lack surviving carvingleaves it artistically uninteresting. But it is the tallest scalable temple in Angkor Thom, providing a nice view from the top. The western staircase (at the back) is the most easily ascended.

Prasat Bei temple - Siem Reap Province

A set of three brick towers between Baksei Chamkrong and the moat of Angkor Thom near the South Gate. The central prasat rises 10 meters. Construction was never completed. Some lintel carvings survive.

Prasat Prei temple - Siem Reap Province

Small, untouristed temple ruins in a forest near Neak Pean. Remains of a gopura, the central tower and halls, and the vestiges of a library and surrounding wall. Some apsara and lintel carvings.

Prasat Suor Prat - Siem Reap Province

Twelve nearly identical laterite and sandstone towers that stand opposite and parallel to the Terrace of the Elephants. The artistic and architectural style of the towers is somewhat unique, defying easy classification and dating. Construction may have begun under Jayavarman VII, but the towers do not display the classic Bayon-style characteristics.

Prasat Top (East) - Siem Reap Province

Angkor Thom: Architecturally unimpressive but historically important small tower. Also known as ‘Monument 487’ and ‘Mangalartha’ in honor of a powerful monk, Jayamangalartha, who was the son of one of Jayavarman VII’s Brahman monks.

Prasat Top (West) - Siem Reap Province

Small, ruined towers standing in a quiet section of Angkor Thom. Inscriptions indicate that the site was used as early as the 9th century, but the present structure is post Angkorian.

Preah Palilay - Siem Reap Province

Picturesque sandstone and laterite tower in a cool, shaded forest setting, in the area behind the Terrace of the Leper King. The central tower is in rough condition but the eastern gopura displays some particularly nice Buddhist-themed carvings.

Preah Pithu Group - Siem Reap Province

Five small temples set in a quiet area opposite the Terrace of the Leper King. Most of the construction is from the 12 th century but one of the temples is Buddhist and may date from the 14th century. The temples are in rough shape but there are interesting carved lintels scattered on the ground.
