Overview

Phnom Prasith and Phnom Reap Temples are located approximately 25 kilometers from Phnom Penh. The journey itself offers views of natural lakes, rice fields, traditional houses and locals going about their daily lives.

Phnom Prasith is situated on the top of a hill providing breathtaking views of the surrounding country side. The temple is on the eastern summit of two hills and visitors will enjoy the rich architecture, stupas, sculptures and art works including a large reclining Buddha reaching nirvana.

A short journey back down the hill leads you to Phnom Reap temple or alternatively named Prasat Vihear Suor. It is a relatively new structure finished in 1998. It follows the architectural style of Angkor Wat and is often called the New Angkor Wat. You will enjoy beautiful sculptures of ancient kings and Buddha. Many local people make the pilgrimage to seek good luck and blessings from the monks.

Insightful

Our guide was incredible to say the least, she was warm and her knowledge about Combodian history was deep rooted and thought provoking. She provided her own experience and we were honored to listen to her anecdotes. Her English was immaculate! Thank you for making our time with you amazing!
Lovely day

Our guide Li was great, knowledgable but not pushy with the information.

Best part of the tour was probably the tuk tuk ride through the market.

Also enjoyed seeing the monks at the temple - very surprised when the head monk asked us for a photo. He then showed us various selfies with other tourists (got the impression not many go to see them). Actually didn't see any other tourists all day, which was different!!!

A bit of a shame that most Temples were only built in the last 20 or so years as Pol Pot essentially destroyed everything. But we did see one that was 700 years old and what made it more special was that a hermit had just arrived a few days earlier for a pilgrimage to the temple.
