Morning: 8.00AM Pick up from hotel or your preferable timing:
After breakfast, your private tour guide and driver will pick you up from hotel then escort you for the full day excursion to the northern part of Siem Reap, it will take you around 3 hours driving to reach Koh Ker the remote archaeological site about 120 kilometres (75 mi) away from Siem Reap and the ancient site of Angkor. It is a very jungle filled region that is sparsely populated. Under the reign of the kings Jayavarman IV, Koh Ker was briefly the capital of the whole empire (928–944 AD). King Jayavarman IV forced an ambitious building program, more than 180 sanctuaries were found in a protected area of 81 square kilometres (31 sq mi). But only about two dozen monuments can be visited by tourists.
The sanctuary is built of brick and is in good condition. This sanctuary has an enclosure and stands on a high platform. Eight stone lions once flanked the stairs but only one remains in its original place. A beautiful elephant sculpture once stood at each of the four corners of the platform but only two remain.
It is a small temple with three sanctuary towers made of laterite, each of which is heavily damaged. The sanctuary interiors are completely blackened by fire, and the west facades of each are destroyed.
Prasat banteay pichean:
This is one of the most romantic Khmer ruins, It will comes close to your fantasies about “lost temples in the jungle”. The central laterite tower, which is the largest structure.
It is a compact temple comprising two fairly well-preserved gopuras and the ruins of five towers arranged in a quincunx.
It is the first of three Linga-Shrines standing along the ring-road. It is a square laterite building standing on a platform and has one doorway and an open roof. In the sanctuary is an impressive lingam standing on yoni. The phallus-symbol is about 2 m (7 ft) high, has a diameter of nearly 1 m (39 in) and a weight of several tons. Together with the yoni it was carved out of the bedrock at this place. The lingam is in a good condition.
It is the main temple at Koh Ker group with a stepped 7-tiered pyramid, the highest ever constructed by the Khmer, rising 36 meters above the forest floor.
Afternoon: Relax for your lunch
Your tour guide and driver will recommended you a good local restaurant. After Lunch we continue to unlock some small attractive temples along the way back to Siem Reap:
At this site was found the statue of the two fighting monkey kings Sugriva and Valin (figures of the Hindu epic Ramayana) and is now in the National Museum in Phnom Penh. A fragment of a multi-armed statue of Vishnu was found in front of the tower in the middle.
Prasat Neang Khmau:
Neang Khmau means the “Black Lady” in Khmer, probably referring to the tower’s fire-scarred surface. Like many of the shrines at Koh Ker the temple was dedicated to Shiva.
This small temple is in a fair state of preservation, with three surviving sanctuary towers and two libraries. While its enclosure walls survive, the temple’s east gopura no longer exists apart from its foundation stones.
Beng Mealea temple:
This temple is very special because it was not rebuilt and vegetation grows inside the temple and around the stones. You will feel like Indiana Jones while exploring!

Angkor Wat Temple:
Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world, was originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture, it has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.
South Gate of Angkor Thom City:
The gate now become the most often visited, as it is the main entrance to the city of Angkor Thom, Along with a bridge flanked by statues of 54 gods and 54 demons, each carry the body of seven-headed.
Built in the late 12th or early 13th century, The Bayon‘s most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces on the many towers which jut out from the upper terrace and cluster around its central peak. The temple is known also for two impressive sets of bas-reliefs, which present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and mundane scenes.
Ta Prohm Temple:
Built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th century, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor’s most popular temples with visitors.
