Travel Photo: Banteay Srei Temple, Cambodia

It is Angkor Wat and Prasat Bayon that capture the imagination of most of the tourists who visit the Angkor heritage site in Siem Reap, Cambodia. But, if you want to see a richly carved temple, then head to Banteay Srei, the citadel of the woman, located at about 35 kms from Siem Reap. This temple is part of the Angkor temple complex and hence can be visited with the same Angkor wat ticket.

Intricate carvings on Banteay Srei temple walls
The best time to visit this temple is right after sunrise when the golden rays of the sun fall on the beautiful carvings of this Hindu temple and one can also see the reflections of the temple in the temple pond. This also allows you to enjoy the sunrise at Angkor wat before making your way here.
