Part of the Angkor complex, Preah Khan consists of a Buddhist sanctuary surrounded by rectangular galleries. The 12th-century ruins enclosing an area of 56 hectares (140 acres) remain mostly unrestored and covered by vegetation. As you roam the carved corridors and walk through a myriad of doors, try to find hidden statues representing various scenes from Buddhist tradition.

The biggest temple in the big circle group of Angkor complex. The massive temple offers a lot of things to check out, where it has many unique sculptures, carvings n even little temple ensemble to the Roman or Greek castle.
