Wat Athvea

Compact and scenic

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Wat Athvea is part of the Angkor site and an Angkor pass is required to visit. The temple itself is relatively large and after being restored is in very good condition. Built during the reign of Suryavarman II, Wat Athvea bares a passing resemblance to Banteay Samre, though it is devoid of any reliefs except for a couple of lonely apsaras. It also features a large laterite enclosure wall with sandstone gopuras and towers in the Angkor Wat style. You're also pretty much guaranteed to have the place to yourself, so it's a good spot for a wander.
