Preah Khan is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built in the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. It is located northeast of Angkor Thom and just west of the Jayatataka baray, with which it was associated.
Visit the 12th century Preah Khan temple, and Neak Pean, a circular artificial island with a Buddhist temple on this 4-hour guided tour. With complimentary hotel pickup and drop-off and lunch, your guide will accompany you to these major sites in an air-conditioned mini van.
Your guide will pick you up from your Siem Reap hotel at approximately 8:30am in an air conditioned van, and will accompany you to Preah Khan, a temple built in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. The temple features spectacular trees and roots that are taking over the ancient, man-made structures. Explore the delicate carvings and don't miss the only two-story construction in Angkor standing on high columns. Your knowledgeable guide will help you navigate through the temple grounds before continuing to your next location.
Constructed in roughly the same period as Preah Khan, Neak Pean offers a different view altogether. Located in the center of the Northern Baray, this temple is essentially an island and is most impressive to view in the wet season. The long raised wooden causeway leading to the temple is surrounded by water and submerged tree trunks lend the scene a ghostly appearance. Neak Pean was once the center of a substantial organization with almost 100,000 officials and servants.
This is a half day tour but allows some time to explore and ask questions. A deliciously healthy lunch is included, and bottled water is available during the entirety of the tour. Please notify of any special dietary requirements at time of booking.
Be taken back to your Siem Reap accommodations at tour's end.
