“In dire need of restauration”
Review of Wat Ek Phnom

Wat Ek Phnom
Ranked #16 of 56 things to do in Battambang
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

These ruins are very interesting but don't expect something like Angkor Wat or Angkor Tom. The site needs restauration but as our guide told us there were no funds to do so.
Still a top site in Battambang in my opinion.

This is a lovely small set of ruins behind some new impressive temples and statues. It is close to town so easy to visit and worth the time. There were few tourists and you are able to walk through what is there as well as see some lovely carvings.

This old temple simply doesn't compare to so many of the others I've visited. The state of the ruins is a real shame. It's nice to get out and about though and enjoy a quick moment scrambling around

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.
