There is an ancient Khmer temple located on top of the hill. The temple was built in the 11th century of laterite and bricks with carved sandstone lintels by the Khmer Empire king Suryavarman I, who practiced Brahmanism. It was dedicated to the Hindu divinities Shiva and Vishnu. The original name of the temple was Sri Suryaparvata, "The mountain of Surya".

This is a beautiful ancient site. Unfortunately, we were followed around by a group of wizened women begging for money and food and young girls selling jasmine flowers.

Phnom Penh Hiking Group organize day trip to Chisor Temple and it was a memorable experiences. It was difficult climbs but promising rewards. Breath taking views. We can visit few old temples made of sandstone with intricate crafts, symbolize the Khmer Angkorian.

This place was added to the itinerary only during the trip, but it was surprising good. The temples could almost pass off as Angkor Wat, and they were even older. The large reclining Buddha was quite a view too. The best thing is it is...More

This is worth the drive out of the city for a day trip. Take your camera, lots of great shots here. It is not a busy site so you can take your time and enjoy it.
