Travel Report: The Black Lady Temple, Koh Ker.

The Black Lady Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. —— June 2020. It had been a long, fruitful morning exploring the isolated temple ruins of Koh Ker. Now, edging into the unforgiving temperatures of early afternoon, Sladja and I found ourselves at the day’s penultimate stop. We’d been looking forward to this one, mostly due to its […]

Travel Report: Prasat Chrap Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Chrap Temple, Koh Ker. —— June 2020. It was mid afternoon by the time we rolled up at Prasat Chrap Temple. This was our eighth ancient structure of what had been a fantastic day exploring the isolated ruins of Koh Ker. Jumping out of the car, we made our way towards the entrance, where the sound […]

Travel Report: Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker. —— June 2020. Even within the isolated and less visited temple complex of Koh Ker, Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple stands as a particularly ignored structure. In many ways, there is little to set it apart from the more standard temple ruins we’ve seen throughout Cambodia. Nevertheless, there […]

Travel Report: Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker. —— June 2020. After the dramatic Prasat Thom and the curious Linga Temples, our next Koh Ker structure was Prasat Krachap. Unfortunately, details of this ruin and its history are a bit thin on the ground. Luckily, some surviving inscriptions at least tell us that it dates back to 928 and […]

Travel Report: The Linga Temples, Koh Ker.

The Linga Temples, Koh Ker, Cambodia. —— June 2020. After the breathtaking majesty of Koh Ker’s pyramid temple at Prasat Thom, I imagine some people might be a bit disappointed by The Linga Temples. In fact, this collection of five single-chamber structures is entirely understated in comparison. Nevertheless, I was fascinated and charmed by the […]

Travel Report: Prasat Thom Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Thom Temple, Koh Ker. —— June 2020. When I look back on the highlights of my Cambodia adventures, I know there’ll always be a special place for Koh Ker. While we’d had an amazing time exploring The Angkor Temples, there was something about Koh Ker that appealed to my more intrepid instincts. Scattered across an isolated jungle region of […]

Travel Report: Preah Khan Temple, Cambodia.

Preah Khan Temple, Cambodia. —— January 2020. Angkor Wat has one of the world’s most celebrated sunsets. Bayon Temple is all about its dramatic carved faces. Ta Prohm has stupendously tangled trees and the Tomb Raider connection. Banteay Kdei boasts a wondrous location opposite Srah Srang Lake, while Banteay Srei treats you to the most intricate […]

Travel Report: Banteay Srei Temple, Cambodia.

Banteay Srei Temple. —— January, 2020. One day, when I look back on my adventures exploring The Angkor Temples, I imagine I might reflect on which of these magnificent creations was my favourite. Even at this early stage I feel Banteay Srei could be a strong contender. Located a considerable thirty two kilometres from the […]

Travel Report: Banteay Kdei Temple, Cambodia.

Banteay Kdei Temple, Cambodia. —— January, 2020. Back in our previous lives, long before Sladja and I even knew each other, we both spent a day touring The Temples of Angkor. My visit came in December 2015, hers shortly after in January 2016. Like so many Angkor first timers, we didn’t venture further than the […]
