This was our last temple on two days of temples. And I still loved it. From the top the views were amazing, I believe it was once surrounded by water. It was scorching hot by midday with no shade so best do this one earlier or later in the day. Beautiful towers and great steps for photos.

A beautiful and quiet temple. We visited just before sun set. There were very few people around when we arrived. But as the sun set neared more people arrived. The sun set falls over the jungle and we had a few cloud formations which made it beautiful. The steps up can be a little steep in places. But the walk... More

Pre Rup Temple is a temple in Angkor Complex made of a pyramid-shaped temple-mountain with the uppermost of the three tiers carrying five lotus towers. It was a grand site to see and explore. It usually is the first temple to visit while doing the "Grand Circuit", so there are plenty of people here at the same time. Maybe starting... More

Perhaps I was becoming a little jaded, but somehow this temple failed to move me, maybe it was late in the day or possibly down to a lack of atmosphere - it's hard to say. A state temple to King Rajendravarman widely thought to have held funerals. It's red coloured stone and high level of preservation lends itself well to... More

Dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva, this is one of the few brick temple surviving in Angkor. Built as a classic temple mountain, the temple has steep steps leading to the top and is capped by a central tower surrounded by towers on the four corners. The towers have beautiful stucco work some of which has survived to this day.... More

Great views from the top of the jungle. It's quite amazing to see the architecture of this time period (prior to Angkor Wat). It's also done in red brick so sunrise/sunset creates some lovely views.

Our tuk tuk driver cum guide told us to get the ticket at around 4:45 pm in order to be in time to view sunset at Pre Rup and the ticket is valid the next day when we will visit Angkor Wat, Bayon and Angkor Thom. Be sure to queue at the right counter to get your tcket and do... More

Our guide brought us here for a very short tour just to let us have a look at the last brick temple built! It is quite cool to see something besides from sandstone or carving from stones. I heard that a number of people would come here for sunsets too and it would be less crowded compared to Phnom Bakheng... More

Pre Rup was dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and was used often for the cremation of bodies. It is an interesting place to see but is not as spectacular as the other temples in Siem Reap.

This is well worth a short visit. Some strenuous steps required but overall not too challenging. Can be done in less than one hour.
