Preah Khan Temple

  • By on August 21, 2009 | 2 Comments

    Preah Khan Temple, or known as the Temple of Sacred Sword was built around 12th Century and you need around 1 hour plus to visit the whole temple in Siem Reap.

    Preah Khan was much more than a temple with over thousands of teachers in this Buddhist University.

    If you have been to Ta Prohm Temple and saw my Tomb Raider jump, you will feel the same atmosphere in Preah Khan with tree surroundings but in larger scale 😀

    Preah Khan Temple Exploration

    You can explore Preah Khan anytime of the day because of the complex building layouts and passageways, but I strongly recommend late afternoon just before Bakheng Hill visit.

    This is the main entrance of the Preah Khan temple and the temple area was huge with shady tree surrounding 😀

    This small building appears to be the ancient library of the Buddhist University and stores the learning material 🙂

    One advice for the visitor, mind your head because there’s you need to explore lots of small passageways.

    I bang my head twice in Preah Khan temple, ouch 🙁

    Preah Khan is one of the worth to explore temple but I guess 1 hour exploration was too long for our depleted energy in the end of the day 😀

    Preah Khan was the last temple visit in our 3rd day of Siem Reap Travel and our last destination of the day was Bakheng Hill 🙂
