This atmospheric Angkorian pile dates from the 11th century and was constructed as a Hindu temple under Suryavarman I and is really quite impressive. The temple consists of prasats on a platform with some bas-relief carvings in very good condition. You can climb up to the main sanctuary although you may have company from the local contingent of beggars. Some of the stone doorways are semi-collapsed in a very aesthetically crooked way. There is a modern pagoda next to the temple of no distinction. The river road drive to Ek Phnom from Battambang passes through small villages and rice paddies, and it is an absolutely stunning little journey, a real slice of genuine rural Cambodia.
