Banteay Srei or Banteay Srey is a 10th-century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Located in the area of Angkor, it lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km north-east of the main group of temples that once belonged to the medieval...more
All reviews pink sandstone intricate carvings small temple beautiful temple tuk tuk lady temple worth the trip hindu god shiva angkor wat landmine museum favorite temple kbal spean well worth the visit angkor area main temple citadel banteay
This is a small but well kept temple. Take a TukTuk there for 25-30USD round trip. Well worth the trip there and back.
P’s. Don’t eat at the drivers suggested restaurant on the way back if it is called Rom Chong Angkor. Give that tourist...More
It's a small Hindu temple ruins. Some gorgeous carving in pink sandstone but it takes an hour to get there. Not worth the drive alone so make sure you make a full day of it and see some things in the surrounding area.
We booked Banteay Srei and Phnom Kulen tour for our last visit in Siem Reap. It was truly fantastic temple with a beautiful color and there are a lot of best parts to see there. The only thing that I notified was the the color...More
It's easy to get overwhelmed by all of the temple visits. This temple is smaller and less crowded than some of the others. It's often very delicately carved, the stone is pink tinged, the level of preservation was often striking, and the overall experience was...More
This a little distant from Angkor Wat therefore fairly less hectic. Still protected by the Angkor area pass however, you're likely to have getting into. A bit of bit of a bumpy tuktuk ride, but easily feasible from Siam Reap. This particular temple is acknowledged...More
One of the older temples in the Angkor complex, this is built of red sandstone and is very striking. Not as large as some of the other temples, but every bit as interesting. The totality of the temples in the Angkor complex is amazing. Worth...More
This temple was highly recommended, but it wasn't one of my favorites. It certainly is one of the more beautiful temples but it's also one of the smallest. You can only walk around it. The surrounding area is nice too.
I honestly cant recommend this...More

We were there in the late afternoon (4 p.m.) in March on a slightly cloudy day but even then I would have been hard-pressed to call the sandstone colour "pink", more like a "pale reddish-brown". We were supposed to go back to one of the Angkor Wat temples for sunset, but decided to visit the Land Mine museum near Banteay Srei instead. Just as well, as the cloud cover increased so no sunset - just the amazing gold outline behind the jagged cloud fringes - looked like forked lightning! The most important thing about BS is the exquisite sandstone carvings - small but beautifully-formed - so go for that reason not the colour.
