Phnom Chisor temple was built in the early 11th century by King Suryavarman some 133 metres up a hill or 412 steps. The view of the surrounding country side only adds to value of this trip. The ruins are in reasonable condition should you arrive early enough provide some great photographic opportunities.

The temple is very nice. Phnom Chiso is located at Takoe Province. It takes time 2 hours by car from Phnom Penh city to reach there, but it's amazing. The view on the top is beautiful. Highly recommend this place to tourists

It's nothing fancy but a very common place for local people to visit with their families and participate in religious festivals. The temples are beautiful and well maintained. The hike up the mountain requires a bit of strength and extra water. It is the most enjoyable if you visit the temple in the morning when its cooler than the afternoon.... More

This Phnom Chisor Temple is much older than the ones in Angkor Wat. I've not been to Angkor Wat, but I guess this kind of make up to it. Although it's up on a mountain, everything is remained as it is with not much alteration. Our private guide told us that people used to climb from a steeper steps than... More

Around an hour from Takeo (USD 40,return) this attraction is for the fit: a lot of steps will take you to a marvellous top though. Pre-Angkor kingdoms ancient ruins will fascinate you, and so will the pagoda and the breathtaking views from the top of the hill. Once you arrive up, you can wander around at your own leisure, no...

Ok where do I begin...its far from the city so make sure you have atleast 6hrs to spare. My driver got lost but we still made it. The entrance way, you are walking past makeshift stores and eateries. My driver only pointed to some steps in the distanced. So off you go. How many? I have no idea but a... More

Came here with a taxi, took about an hour plus from Phnom Penh. Climb the steps and get to the top of the temple and be amazed by the view!

Well we made our way via TukTuk from Phnom Penh. A ride and a half!! Haha We got to Phnom Chissor and to be honest, the entrance did not look like an entrance, looked very worn down, after climbing like over 300 steps we got to the the top to find no information what so ever simply a man requesting...
