Prasat Kuha Nokor

Northwestern Cambodia

This 11th-century temple, constructed during the reign of Suryavarman I, is in extremely good condition thanks to a lengthy renovation before the civil war. It is on the grounds of a modern wat and is an easy-enough stop for those with their own transport. The temple is signposted from NH6 about 70km southeast of Kompong Thom and 22km north of Skuon; it's 2km from the main road. From NH6, you can get a moto to the temple.
