Other satellite temples

For those who can't get enough

What we say: 3.5 stars

Other temples surround Banteay Chhmar but most are in complete ruins or particularly challenging to reach.

If you're an ancient temple enthusiast, you might find visiting some of them to be quite an adventure (though stay on marked paths as landmines might be present). When we tried, Prasat Chinchem Trey was out of the question because the road was flooded, Prasat Yeay Chou was surrounded by such thick vegetation that the locals told us we'd have to return with a machete and while Prasat Yeay Pom and Ta Em were accessible they are in such poor condition that they simply resembled a pile of rocks. The satellite temples most worthy of a visit are Prasat Samnang Tasok and Banteay Top.
