We came here after having seen Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm. Preah Khan was absolutely stunning, and the lack of crowds when we went made the experience that much more enjoyable. Another must-see when visiting the temples in the area.
Preah Khan means sacred sword.
If Ta Prohm was dedicated to his mother, King Jayavarman VII dedicated this temple to his father Dhararandra.
It's beautiful and it appears largely untouched by time or conflict.
It's said the king stayed here while he was building Angkor...More
Part of the Grand circuit , this temple is largely unrestored and brings memories of Ta Prohm with trees growing right through ruins. However this is not as famous as Ta Prohm which is associated with Lara Croft.
We went on a high season now and this temple was amazing. Many parts don't reconstruct some temples in the Angkor Park. This temple is really natural with many trees growing on the roof. It was similar to Ta Prom temple. Less visitors and has...More
I biked to Preah Khan through my hotel--about an hour or so within many, though I was biking slowly as a result of the heating and exhaustion. It was a great deal further from Thom than indicated by the map, but because they warn, the...More
I have seen numerous temples in numerous places, therefore it is not hard to get' temple fatigue.' We did this method after among the bigger ones, as well as appreciated the considerably more personal experience of the school. It's different enough from Thom and Ankor...More
A lessor known site but charming and quiet which allows for reflection without the usual hordes at the main sites. Go alone with a local knowledgeable guide and go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the heat. Do enjoy the journey there...More
Visiting Preak Khan seemed like Ta Prohm without the hordes of tourist. On the walk from the parking lot to Preah Khan brace yourself though because here the children are relentless in attempt to try and sell their souvenirs. They will follow you along the...More
This was the temple that King Jayavarman VII build for his Father, and if I am not wrong, he also build Ta Prom for his mother. (Will write a review of Ta Prom later). And the thing that strike me, both temple have the interesting...More
Preah Khan was one of the favorite of mine of all of the temples we visited on our two day trip of the spot. Covered in deep jungle along with a photographer's dream to check out here. Some extraordinary tree growth here as well, to...More

Hi, I hired the Tuk Tuk driver Mr Tivea from my hotel that picked me up from the airport.. for $30US I had him take me out to Banteay Srei ( about 40 km out of siem reap) visiting Preah Roup on the way and then East Baray finishing the day at Preah Khan.
The following day for $15US he drove me around the main sites of Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm..both trips were full days and I walked around each site and met up with the driver at an appointed spot.
The 3 day pass was $40 US and only took a few minutes getting the photo and pass done at the new facility on our way out to our first site.
We stopped for a cheap and simple lunch each day and there was always plenty of water on the Tuk Tuk.

When we were there, they closed at 5.00 & are open daily. You'll find that your Tuk Tuk driver or taxi driver will know what the hours are for all of them. They will also know what time to go to avoid the bus loads of people! Hope you have a ball :-)
