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.

If you are in the area it is worth going to see this temple but it really is in poor condition and isn't as good as the temples in the Siem Reap area which aren't that far away.

a small temple more ancient than those at Ankor. Situated right next to a large buddha and a modern temple. Definitely worth the trip from Battambang centre to catch.
