Krol Ko

Temples are thick on the ground in this area, near to Neak Pean on the Grand Circuit, indicating just how densely populated these northern suburbs of Angkor Thom were.


Take a peek inside Krol Ko.

As with Banteay Prei, the temple is orientated east but would also have had a splendid view to the south across the Jayatataka Baray. Otherwise ditto for Banteay Prei — small but cute temple set in a very quiet wooded location — fairly ruined but some interesting carvings remaining, though most of them now lie on the ground.

Small temple, the exact purpose unknown.

Set on a laterite platform, there’s a laterite and sandstone wall and gopuras, with a tumbled down central sandstone tower. It only takes a few short minutes to have a quick wander around.
