It isn't a must to visit if you don't have too much time. Just go in when you have a lot of time or if you pass by. You won't find it very special after going to the biggest temple as Bayon. It was quite quiet when we visit there.

Thommanon is right across the road and they look similar. Apparently China restored the Chau Say Tevoda temple. There were no crowds and you do get to see 2 temples in one stop.

This temple is next to Thommanon. It is good place to visit depending on mood and time. Very good for taking photographs with feel of khmer architecture.

This is a small complex, stabilized and renovated by the Chinese, opposite Thomammon. The two temples are in some ways a pair and worth visiting if you are going this way to, for example, Ta Prohm.

This is one of the smaller temples that have been partially restored, you can see very nice work on the doors and columns. It was not crowded so its very peaceful and you can get some nice photos here. Just sitting there in the shade for a while to appreciate the carvings makes it a nice afternoon.

Reputed to be built in conjuction with Thommanon , just across the street. It has undergone much restoration and after viewing both temples, we could really see that Chau Say Tevoda stands in partnership with Thommanon. Easy to covered as is a small temple, similar design and floor plan to Thommanon.

Definitely worth a stop if you have the time. It's quite pretty and fun to explore. There's some nice architecture and when combined with Thommanon makes for a nice stop along the small route through the park.

I'm not sure why this temple has such little reviews and poor reviews, I thought this temple was on the same par as others and loved some of the architect here. I also thought it had some amazing spots for great photography, especially for framed photography and believe it is a must see temple.

This small temple looks superficially like its neighbour Thommanon, but it is currently in rather bad shape, although undergoing renovation (by Chinese specialists). You really have the feeling to be among the first to discover it, the more so that it has very few visitors despite being very accessible.
