This is a magnificent temple. If you have mobility issues, you can probably still walk around the perimeter and appreciate it!

Really glad we had some information from a guide book for this temple. Knowing that it was deconstructed and reconstructed as a giant puzzle before/after the Khmer Rouge was fascinating. There were very few people there which made it really enjoyable and the climb to the top was very much worth it (but really really hot and exposed to the sun the whole time).

It wasn’t even mentioned in most of the books we looked at and all the tourists seemed to skip it, but we found this to be the highlight (along with the Leper King Balcony and the South Gate) of Angkor Thom.

A smaller temple that is quite fun to climb up for views out across the Angkor Thom region. It is found near the centre of Angkor Them and 5 minutes walk away from the more famous Bayon temple, so worth stopping by when seeing that one.

Large temple on north side of Bayon temple,approached by long walkway over dry moat,walkway very impressive for the number of supporting pillars,It is possible to climb to the top of this temple on the wooden stairs that are very steep and may put some less mobile people off.Great view from the top,worth the climb,impressive for it's size.

This temple is just up from Bayon Temple, where this temple adjoins the southern enclosure of the Royal Palace. Some climbing of staircases, which provide some great views of the complex and surrounds. This temple is part of the Angkor Thom complex of temples! Baphuon Temple, Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King are all in one sequence, adjacent to each other and all of these can be done just by walking from one to the next as we did.

The side adjoining the Terrace of the Elephants is the East side. On the western side, the retaining wall of the second level was fashioned into a reclining Buddha 60m in length. Walk the entire perimeter to reach the other side to see it. It's in open-air, so you only have to enter the complex and not the monument, though you do have to climb a ton of stairs. The Reclining Buddha, though huge, is not in great shape, the lower half is totally gone and you have to really use your imagination to make out the features of the remaining top half. You wouldn't even notice it exists unless you really know what you are looking at.

Steep stairways lead to its upper terrace and to awesome views of "Angkor Thom", as well as of part of "Angkor Archaelogical Park" but climbing up may be quite difficult and physically demanding.

Baphuon is approached by a 200m elevated walkway. Clamber under the elevated causeway leading to Baphuon for an incredible view of the hundreds of pillars supporting it.

There aren't as many carvings in this temple.
