It has 4 little broken towers to see but if not interested in the story behind what you see and dont have a guide with you, no reason to go. Seems like there are restoration works in progress. As always in SR, the ladies selling drinks outside the attraction are interested only in ripping you off.

This temple is around 14km from Siem Reap and there was scaffolding around the temple on our visit. We were more interested in the Monastery next door and the nearby Angkor Legacy Academy where children from poor family backgrounds receive free education.

Part of the Roluos Group,look for fine inscriptions in Sanskrit or old Khmer. Friendly Buddhist teaching temple here with a classroom of nearly 20 computers: Universal Friendship School - seem to be doing a really good job.

This temple is on the south group of angkor wat archaeological park, on the not too high hill. There is modern buddhist monatery on the left side. The temples themselves are severly ruined. But some pediments are well preserved and reliefs of guardian ladies are the masterpiece here. While 2 of buildings are scaffolded for renovation, the other 2 of... More

Lolei is part of the Rolous temple group, which includes Bakong and Prah Ko, both of which are not even a 10 minute drive away. Despite being the youngest of these temples, it is in a vey poor state of preservation. The German government has underwritten preservation work and there is a lot of scaffolding on several of the buildings.... More

Lolei is one of the smaller temples in the Roluos Group it is still worth the effort to visit, especially if visiting others in the group.

The last of the three Temples in the Roluos group and to be honest, not worth the effort. Two of the three buildings have scaffolding from top to bottom (and according to the guide, has been like this for 3 years).

For the hardcore history buffs or those wanting to tick everything off thelist, you should go and see (along with the small circle and big circle of course). If you only have limited time in Siem Reap and can't see 20+ temples, then you could give this one a miss. It is mostly sectioned off due to repairs, and isn't... More
