Banteay Srei and Big Circuit Temples Small Group Tour

by Journey Cambodia Duration 8h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$55

Start with a pick-up from your hotel at around 08:00 and travel to the most interesting temples outside Angkor Thom city. Begin with a first stop at Pre Rup Hindu Temple built as the state temple of Khmer King Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962. It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction.

Drive to the intricately carved and well-preserved Banteay Srei. The detailed reliefs on this smaller sandstone structure are regarded as the finest, most skilfully crafted in Cambodia. Banteay Srei has only been accessible since the late 1990s, when the Khmer Rouge left the area. End your tour at Angkor with lunch at the temple (own expense), and a short rest.

Continue the afternoon by moving on to Preah Khan Temple, a ruined but highly atmospheric mélange of tree roots and crumbling stone structures. Construction of this site was commissioned by the great 'temple builder' Jayavaraman VII (in honour of his father) and a visit to this smaller site makes for an interesting contrast with the more imposing Angkor Wat. Preah Khan is currently being restored by the World Monument Fund and in places is in remarkably good condition. In the late afternoon, return to town after a memorable day exploring.
