Srah Srang, Siem Reap

3.3
#3 of 8 in Nature in Siem Reap
Experience the view of a sunrise reflecting on Srah Srang. The reservoir stretches over an area of 350 m by 700 m (1,148 ft by 2,296 ft), but water floods only a part of it. See the legacy of the Buddhist minister Kavindrarimathana that dates back to the 10th century, noting the architecture of the place, with stone serpent heads and garudas with unfurled wings. As you approach the water on the steps guarded by two stone lions, soak up the ancient atmosphere of the baray.
