Not crowded like the main temples in the big and small circuit, Banteay Samre allows one to really step back in time to enjoy the peace. Many beautiful corridors and courtyards.

This stunning edifice was visited very early in the morning to capture the soft photographic light. We were also fortunate for it to be an overcast day thus minimising the contrasts. A memorable experience to be revisited when we next visit Siem Reap.

A beautiful temple. I think it's worth the drive if you have time. We combined it with a stop for lunch and the landmine museum.

Large, comparatively flat temple displaying distinctively Angkor Wat-style architecture and artistry. The temple underwent extensive restoration this century by archaeologists using the anastylosis method. Banteay Samre was constructed around the same time as Angkor Wat. The style of the towers and balustrades bear strong resemblance...More

Banteay Samre has a unique interior layout. You also get to climb the steps throughout which is challenging but fun. It is also neat to see how the interior would hold water and how the steps led down to it.
