Phnom Bakheng Temple

3 reviews of Phnom Bakheng Temple

Beautiful sunsets

Excellent

This Hindu temple was built on top of the mountain during the reign of Yasorvarman (889-910), at the end of the ninth century. It stands directly opposite the entrance to Angkor Wat, and is a famous place to go to watch the sunset. To get there, you can either walk or take an elephant; the road isn't too long, but the heat can be a bit of a problem. It's worth the walk and the heat of the climb, though, to see the spectacular sunset and the stunning views of Angkor Wat. We were lucky with the weather and it was really lovely.
