Preah Pithu

Temple in Angkor Thom

Preah Pithu, located across Northern Ave from Tep Pranam, is a group of 12th-century Hindu and Buddhist temples enclosed by a wall. It includes some beautifully decorated terraces and guardian animals in the form of elephants and lions. It sees few tourists so is a good place to explore at a leisurely pace, taking in the impressive jungle backdrop.
