Architecture sights in Prasat Preah Vihear
- Sort by:
The place to start a visit is at the monumental stairway, if possible from the bottom (near the market and the crossing from Thailand). As you walk south, you come to four cruciform gopura (sanctuaries), decorated with a profusion of exquisite carvings (eg lintels) and separated by esplanades up to 350m long. At the entrance to the Gopura of the Third Level, look for an early rendition of the Churning of the Ocean of Milk, a theme later depicted awesomely at Angkor Wat.
