We loved seeing this site. A large Buddha is an understatement. The old crumbling temple is fun to see. So is the new Pagoda and the giant Buddha. Worth the time.

Not far from Battambang and fits easily into a morning exploring as part of a tour. Worth seeing if you’re in the area, we didn’t see a single other person on the site, so you can explore at leisure.

There's not much tourist around here like the more famous temple. The plants growing from this temple is amazing! It's worth seeing as it's only $2 for entrance! It's a good relaxing place to be since it's more quiet without all the tourist.

There were no tourists during our visit here. It is a small site with an active altar. There is a one dollar entrance fee if you arrive by the adjacent pagoda with a large Buddha statue. There is another rear entrance from the back road.
