If a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s a novel on some of Angkor Wat’s numerous temples—Angkor Wat itself, Phnom Bok, Banteay Samre, East Mebon, Pre Rup and Banteay Kdei to whet your appetite.
The most famous temple of the bunch. This is where a million people gather at sunset every day to photograph the structure’s reflection in a pond.
One of 3 mountain temples in the area; also substitutes as a jungle gym for local children.
Relatively remote and quiet, tucked away from the main loop at Angkor Wat.
One of Angkor’s ancient island temples—except all the water has dried up.
Mainly famous for its cistern, not to be confused with a planter during the wet season.
Not nearly as popular as it should be. It has a little bit of everything, from Bayon-style stone heads to Ta Prohm-style vegetation.
