I saw this pagoda a long the way to the old market. i had spent about 30min to look around this pagoda. this pagoda have a very very long history that i can't remember. and there is the place of monk living. this place is very peaceful and charming. you could spend your little time to see this one.

Stumbled upon this gem while looking for Wat damnak and was totally blown away. This pagoda is beautifully kept and clean with wonderful history and shrines to walk around. There is a beautiful main temple open to those wishing to donate, pray, ask for blessing, or simply visit a massive reclining Buddha. Monks are throughout, very friendly and informative.

I was walking from my hotel along the river to the Old Market and stumbled upon this fairly large temple complex. It is different from many temples in that there is an explanation of some of Buddhist history. There are quite a few statues. Worth a visit. Children might enjoy this temple because of the replicas of a boat, sacred... More

It is close to Siem Reap river. It's just simple style and it's not much interesting, but it's quite place.

Easy to find, in town, incredible decoration, as we visited it at the end of march, not many people and the whole place seemed to be available for us. We were allowed to take pictures without problem. A great place to make a pause while in Siem reap

It's a rather nice temple. But after seing Angkor Wat and the other fantastic temples, it's not that impressive. Still worth a visit and easy acces from the city center.

Not far from the river and the Old Market you will find this beautiful temple where two Angkor-Era towers exist. They actually let you in the temple here so go inside and look at the colorful murals. Be sure to be respectful by taking your shoes off and if you have long pants even better.

This is not to be missed. You are allowed in the temple and walls and ceiling paintings are very colourful and tell a story. Outside there are many stupas all different from each other. You can also wander around the nuns quarters and the cremation area. There is also an orphange onsite.
