Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Explore the well-restored Angkor Wat architectural style at Banteay Samre, a Hindu temple built at the beginning of the 12th century under Khmer rulers Suryavarman II and Yasovarman II. Thanks to modern technological advancements, archaeologists have returned much of the temple to its former glory, especially the intricate carvings on the facade. Its towers and balustrades resemble the Angkor Wat towers, as well as those of the Khmer temple of Phimai in Thailand. Consider combining your visit with a trip to another 10th-century holy site dedicated to Lord Shiva nearby.

  • It is a small temple. The preservation state is very good. There are few tourists, I can feel quiet and spiritual
  • This will take a bit more time to get to as it's further out from the rest of the other temples. It's worth a visit however as there are very few tourists who visit and it's structure is different from the others.
