Part of the Angkor complex, Preah Khan consists of a Buddhist sanctuary surrounded by rectangular galleries. The 12th-century ruins enclosing an area of 56 hectares (140 acres) remain mostly unrestored and covered by vegetation. As you roam the carved corridors and walk through a myriad of doors, try to find hidden statues representing various scenes from Buddhist tradition.

  • Good
  • How can you really go wrong with any of the temples in the Angkor complex? We've been very blessed to have been able to visit siem reap during this pandemic and be able to visit all the temples with literally no tourists. If you are in country or you have the opportunity to get to Cambodia I would definitely recommend going to Preah Temple
