We visited the grounds of this Wat as part of our self-guided walking tour of the town - with a focus on visiting a range of Buddhist temples. This Wat was memorable, not for its modern temples but for the ancient remains of the wall...More

The best of the temples in town for me. 12th century Khmer ruins in stone as opposed to the other more modern temples. There are five tower-like shrines facing east, west, north and south with the main shrine in the middle. There are information boards...More
