Phnom Bok Temple

Phnom Bok is the third natural hill site. Its elevation is 221 meter. The hill is about 25 Km northeast of Siem Reap. It is approached from the road to Banteay Srei temple. An eastbound road leads to Bantea Samre temple for another 6 Km from whence the hill is approached through 635 wide steps leading to the top where the Phnom Bok temple is situated. From the top of this mountain, though the temple is seen mostly in ruins, the panoramic vistas seen all round are of the Tonle Sap Lake, the Phnom Kulen to the north and vast plains of rice fields to the south. Like Phnom Krom, Phnom Bok consists of sandstone which has a relatively high magnetic susceptibility.

Trip to see this beautiful temple, you will be spend nearly whole day by starting in the morning. Phnom Bok is a hill in the northeast of Eastern Baray in Cambodia, with a temple of the same name built on it. It is one of the trilogies of mountains, each of which has a temple with similar layout. The creation of the temple is credited to the reign of Yasovarman I (889–910) between 9th and 10th centuries, established after he moved his capital to Angkor. The two other sister temples, named after the contiguous hills, are the Phnom Bakheng and Phnom Krom.

You will be felt a bit tired by climbing up to the top of mountain but after you break for lunch at local restaurant you will continue to see Ostrich zoo which located near to the mountain, and you will enjoy with beautiful landscape of the natural pond & countryside.
