Part of the Angkor complex, Preah Khan consists of a Buddhist sanctuary surrounded by rectangular galleries. The 12th-century ruins enclosing an area of 56 hectares (140 acres) remain mostly unrestored and covered by vegetation. As you roam the carved corridors and walk through a myriad of doors, try to find hidden statues representing various scenes from Buddhist tradition.

Preah Khan Reviews
仏教とヒンディ教と土地の聖霊の寺院。私も含めここのファンは多い。東の山道から入ったが壁面の観音菩薩とリンガは「考え方が違う同士の融和」を意味するとガイドさんに聞いた。現在修復中の箇所が多いが、堀を渡る橋の有名な乳海攪拌の欄干は壊れていても見応えがある。 more »Temple of Buddhism and Hindi and the Holy Spirit of the land.

The biggest temple in the big circle group of Angkor complex. The massive temple offers a lot of things to check out, where it has many unique sculptures, carvings n even little temple ensemble to the Roman or Greek castle.

What a fascinating place. The scale, the amount of sculptures, the statues on the bridge, are all amazing. The rubbles within the temple gives extra mystery feels. Restorations are minimal. Definitely top 3 of Angkor for me. Oh did I mention the tree that grows on the wall?
