What people are saying:

This is one of the world's top temples. I don't know why people visit the tourist trap temples in Thailand when the temples in Cambodia are much better.

Additional Information

Introduction

Located northeast of Angkor Thom, Preah Khan (the Temple of the Holy Sword) was built in the 12th century. According to legend, it was built by King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. It is one of the larger temples in the Angkor area. Entering from the eastern entrance, there is a two-story building with Mediterranean-style circular pillars, which is said to have been used to store the holy sword. The interior of the temple is cross-shaped. At its heart is the central sanctuary. The four sides are connected by vaulted promenades to the east, south, west and north gates, with vestibules outside the gates.
