About Preah Khan in Siem Reap

The temple of Preah Khan was built by King Jayavarman VII to honor his father and is located North-West of the Angkor Thom. The temple houses a number of cravings related to the Hindu mythology and Buddhist motifs are also present. The temple has been left largely unrestored, and nature has reclaimed most of the structures becoming one with the temples. The temple is built on the site of King Jayavarman VII’s victory over the Chams in 1191, and the name translates to mean ‘holy sword’ or ‘sacred sword.’ The temple is dedicated to the King’s father and houses the main image of ‘bodhisattva Avalokitesvara.’ The 5 sq. km temple city had multiple functions of being a University, a temple, and a city with almost 100,000 inhabitants. 

Built on the northern edge of the Angkor archaeological park, the ‘flat’ design temple complex covers a total of 138 hectares of area guarded by walls and a moat as is common with all Khmer temples and cities. The walls have extensive carvings of ‘Garudas,’ and the temple itself have a number of chambers, courtyards, and shrines. The distinctive feature of the temple is its two pavilions, the sanctum sanctorum and the hall of dancers. The temple has been left unrestored to major extent similar to the Ta Prohm temple, and the trees and vegetation run rampant. The setting of an ancient temple in a dense jungle is somewhat of a theme at Angkor that seems to complement the architecture, design and the placement of the temples all seem natural making one belief there to be some hidden secrets in these hidden and lost temples.

    Yashodhan's 11 days trip to Siem Reap

    The trip was very well organised. There were a few hiccups though. The Da Nang Red-Shanked Doucs monkey trip was a shambles. The jeeps made such a noise that the monkeys must have fled deep inside on hearing the sound! I had lugged my 100-400 telephoto all the way to be able to take a shot of these monkeys. The person conducting the trip was in a hurry of completing the trip. Apart from this deep disappointment, the rest of the trip was well executed. We needed a change of guides in Siam Reap which was done immediately. The Halong Bay cruise was supposed to be a 5* cruise but we did not experience it that way. The vehicles picked us on time and the crew appeared to put in extra effort to make us comfortable. All in all a good trip save for the couple of hiccups I mentioned. I would definitely travel again with Eric if he fixes these few lacunae.

    Manvir's 8 days trip to Siem Reap

    Ha long Bay cruise could have been better as the images shared and the cruise booked was a completely different one.Food was not that great with limited options when one has to stay for 2 nights as they serve same menu for the next night also,even after repeatedly telling to serve something different. Breakfast too was not that good. Next Ba Nah Hills trip could have been better as time spent there was too less to walk around the place. Time given was completely different from the itinerary provided. Definitely the 2 good locations of north Vietnam which are worth spending time and should be planned well.

    Thank you Hannah & Shubham for all the planning that went into this trip. Both were very prompt with messages and calls.. The drivers on the trip were very punctual always came in 15 mins before the given time which was really good as we didnt have to wait or call anyone. The package itself was very good. We changed it so many times but both Hannah and Shubham were very patient. All in all we had a very good trip. So thank you!

    Chinmay's 15 days trip to Siem Reap

    Well my testimonial matters the most because i am a hardcore critic when it comes to services. I was very skeptical while dealing with LVP Travels since i had read so many kinds of reviews online during my research and finalization. During my process of planning, i got lot of help from Jenny and she was very kind and happy to help. When i finally decided to go ahead with Jenny's company, i still had my doubts if the services will be delivered accurately without any hiccups. But I would say, Jenny did a commendable job in arrangement of the tour. She was in touch all through and wherever there were challenges she found out the way to deal with those to make my tour a memorable one. Just to mention, i had lots of discussions, agreements, disagreements with Jenny, but in the end the service was nice. Jenny you have earned this testimonial. Looking forward for more such associations.

    Jaydeep's 2 days trip to Siem Reap

    It was an awesome experience! All arrangements were as per itinerary promised. All pickups and activities were on dot time as mentioned. Henry, travel associate from S VIet was in constant touch and always available for any additional information or help. We were in good hands and good care was taken. Must say impressed and delighted with flawless planning. 10 on 10 for activities and accommodation, travel arrangements. I strongly recommend, if you are travelling Vietnam it has to be Travel Traingle and S VIet (Now Realistic Asia). I will definitely give first preference for my future holidays.
