You'll miss something if you do not visit this temple complex. Many years back the Swiss and French dismantled the temple pillar by pillar to avoid damage during the 20th Century conflicts. Then in late 1990s, they came back and helped put it all together....More
Some people complain about the distance, and indeed it takes time to get there on a tuk tuk. However, this temple has the best carvings of all the temples and it is definetely worth it.

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.
