Highlights

  • Explore other hidden gems of AngkorGo beyond the biggest temples and set off with a scenic journey by Remork/TukTuk to serenely explore these less-visited ruins including Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Som, Eastern Mebon, and Pre Rup.

Tour Description

Today, enjoy a scenic journey by Remork/TukTuk venture on a less-traveled road deep into Angkor Park to discover the hidden gems of Angkor – another fascinating corner of Angkor that major travelers overlooked.

Preah Khan or “Sacred Sword” – constructed as a monastery and teaching complex in 1191 by Jayavarman VII, it is unique in its sense of religious tolerance, with sections dedicated to Buddhism, ancestor worship, and the Hindu gods Shiva and Vishnu. Once inside the second enclosure, look for the delicate frieze of ‘apsaras’ or celestial dancers, in the Hall of Dancers.

Neak Pean – the “coiled serpents”. H. C. Candee wrote; “Neak Pean is one of the temples that makes one dream of olden days of luxury and beauty. It was worthwhile to live then and to be a woman among a race that has never adored its women. It was at the tiny temple of Neak Pean that eager princesses laid their lovely offerings of wrought gold and pungent perfumes”. Today, there is only a central sanctuary surrounded by four ponds.

Ta Som is a captivating and charming temple (like Ta Prohm, there is a tree growing through part of the structure which provides excellent photo opportunities)

Eastern Mebon temple built within the Eastern Baray (guarded at its corner by stone figures of harnessed elephants)

Pre Rup is an architecturally and artistically superior temple-mountain; with beautifully carved false doors on the upper level, as well as an excellent view of the surrounding countryside.
