Must-See Temples in Angkor
A tour of the ancient Khmer temples in Angkor: Banteay Kdei, Banteay Srei, Bayon, Ta Prohm, and the incomparable Angkor Wat.

Banteay Srei
For many tourists, Banteay Srei is Angkor's most beautiful temple, the

Ta Prohm
The stonework may be overrun by vegetation, but that may be Ta Prohm's saving grace. This temple is one of the most popular with Angkor's visitors, as it's one of the most evocative of the lot: its rugged good looks even got it a guest shot as a location in the first Tomb Raider movie. Page 3.

Banteay Kdei
Its spacious and tree-shaded grounds, combined with the relatively low traffic, makes Banteay Kdei a great place for visitors with time on their hands, all the better to stop and take in the atmosphere. Page 4.

Bayon
Like Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom is nothing less than a physical representation of the Universe. The city is divided into four parts by perpendicular axes meeting in the middle, with the Bayon rising where the axes meet: standing as a link between heaven and earth, a symbol of the mythical Mount Meru.
