Kor Ker temple

This tour takes you to a spectacular temple that served as the capital of a divided Khmer empire in the 10th century. Koh Ker was founded by King Jayavarman IV in 928 to 944 AD.

The temple was built on a grand scale and features some of the largest sculptures to be found in Cambodia. Not only are they large, they also feature original action oriented figures. Some of the sculptures are on display in the National Museum in Phnom Penh.

Koh Ker is located about 2 hours from Siem Reap, so the drive to the site will give visitors an excellent opportunity to observe the Cambodian countryside and local rural life. Due to the somewhat remote location of the site, Koh Ker has much smaller crowds, making for a pleasantly quiet experience. This tour is perfect to combine with the hidden temple ruin of Beng Melea, which almost rivals the size of Angkor Wat.
