Prasat Prei is not of specific artistic interest. Like many others, it is a typical temple in the Bayon style of the late 12th century. The major attraction is its location on a small natural hillock. In front of the main sanctuary there are remains of an east gate, a very simple and half-ruined Gopuram structure. Ta Som ist situated 7.5 km to the northeast of Angkor Wat, as the crow flies, or 12 km by road. Among the temples within the forest-covered Angkor Park, Ta Som is the farest one, as it is situated close to the northeastern corner of the Grand Circuit or Grand Tour.

Thanks to the master artists who constructed and carved the temples, the vivid imagery is bound to captivate even those with little knowledge of its deeper meanings.

09/08/2018 · Angkor Wat (meaning “City Temple”) is the most magnificent and largest of all Angkor temples. The structure occupies and enormous site of nearly 200 hectares (494 acres). A huge rectangular reservoir surrounds the temple which rises up through a series of three rectangular terraces to the central shrine and tower at a height of 213 meters (669 feet). The temples in Angkor Archeological Park are split into two main sightseeing routes: The Small Circuit and the Big (or Grand) Circuit. Their routes are overlapping, and there are other (smaller) roads or paths to travel within the park. However, the Small Circuit and Big Circuit are standing items, and any tuk-tuk driver in Siem Reap will know them.
