"Be sure to explore all of the passageways of this temple - amazing! BEWARE of the off-duty police however! They act as friendly but unsolicited tour guides & then ask for a donation in return after a while, knowing you'll be intimidated. Just politely say you want to explore at your own pace. We saw at least 3 parties begrudgingly pull out their wallets after being unknowingly escorted around. We smiled, said thanks and then chose a different corridor to explore. They soon got the hint and left us alone. "

"Must do when in the Angkor region! Great jungle with some cool trees throughout. Make sure to explore all the books and crannies - we were by ourselves most of the time and found some really great spots!"

"Like being lost in the past. Best smaller temple in complex. Less tourists. Amazing feeling. "

"Great temple. My son's fave...probably because of the 'descending order' doors that decrease in size. Interesting effect. Has a maze like feel."

"Huge temple like a maze. It has those well aligned doors (but different in height) that stretch out from north to sout and east to west. Lovely interior"
