Krol Kro

Another suburban temple

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Another former suburban temple of the Jayavarman VII period, Krol Kro is also situated on the north side of the Preah Khan Baray, so it's found just off the Grand Circuit road between Neak Pean and Ta Som.

Temples are thick on the ground in this area, indicating just how densely populated these northern suburbs of Angkor Thom were. 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. Set on a laterite platform, there's a laterite and sandstone wall and gopuras, with a tumbled down central sandstone tower.
