These group of Temples are at the heart of the first Capital of the Khmer Empire and date from the 9th. Century. Built in a combination of Sandstone and Clay Bricks, the architechture rivals that of the Masons of Western Europe in precission and beauty. This was my first visit to Cambodia and I will have to return as a... More

After you spend your first 2 days around the main Angkor temples, put this on your third day list. Not as busy as the main temples but worth seeing. You will need to have a ticket to visit this place.

Not too far from Siem Reap centre, but a ticket is necessary before visiting. Several temples ranging from very ruined to large and and less ruined.

This Rolous temple group is easily accessible by tuk tuk without any long ride like Banteay Srey, Kbal Spean or Beng mealea. The temple complex locates in the community so less crowded with tourists; locals there are also good humored, helpful. Walking not too tough is good advantages as compare with Angkor Wat which is much crowded, noisy with tourists... More

We had half a day spare and decided to visit these temples. They are a set of 3 temples dedicated to lord Shiva. They are worth a visit if you've completed the remaining set of temples in the main Angkor area. On the plus side, there are a very few tourists here which means better photo opportunity. We kept this... More

3 very interesting temples, older than most of Angkor, Bakong is my favorite. You'll have to find a driver willing to take you there, I did Tonle Sap lake on the same day as well since Rolous is on the way there.

Started off with Phrea Ko in the early morning with the gentle sun lighting the surfaces of the pagodas. Amazing hue of sandstone red was presented. The carvings seemed to be alive in the gentle sunlight Then proceeded to Bakong. Beautiful pagoda pointing towards the sky. The pagoda's stone laying configuration is different from the Phrea Ko. Finally Lolei, was... More

If you have time it is worth visiting these small temples. They do not attract crowds and if you wait a few minutes tour groups tend to move through quickly then leave so you can have quiet moments to yourself. Both Preah Ko and Bakong are set among giant trees and lush greenery. Preah Ko was built in the 800s... More

I saw these ones on the way home after Beng Mealea. They are quite nice, lots of cool carvings and such, but I would only do these if you have time after seeing the main circuit temples. Less crowded of course.

I'd only do this group of temples if you have lots of time. I'd also do them early on. They are older and smaller then others. This is wonderful in it's own right - but after some of the more impressive sites they can feel underwhelming. When we were there there was lots of restoration going on which is necessary,... More
