Phimeanakas is part of Angkor Thom. It is lovely and well worth a visit. You are not allowed to climb up it so you can just have a look.

This three tiered pyramid was built as a centerpiece of the Royal Palace. There was a tower that is now gone and no entry to investigate the insides. Just looking at the mighty staircases still standing is impressive. The trees overgrowing parts of the temple...More

This temple is located a bit away from the Terrace of the Elephants. It is not possible to enter so just have a look from the outside. Allow 30 minutes here before you continue your tour of Angkor Thom.

Phimeanakas is one of a few temples inside the vast Angkor Thom complex, so you will likely see this as part of such a tour, but they don't allow you to climb it, and really, it's not much to behold compared to so many others.

It is a Hindu temple built in the shape of a three tier pyramid. On top of the pyramid there was a tower, while on the edge of top platform there are galleries.

Part of Angkor Thom in the Royal Palace area. With a guide you will be able to reconstruct life here at the time of the Khmer Empire. The colour and style make the actual temple quite interesting

Its the temple palace in Angkor Thom and nothing very impressive though you will see it during the tour. It has a nice golden colour that looks pretty surrounded by green forest from far. It lies between Baphuon temple and the terraces. There's a lake...More

Phimeanakas is part of Angkor Thom. Would have been a master piece earlier, but due to its un-accessibility, cant find much here. A good one to see quickly, take photos and move on.
