Pre Rup Temple, 11th Century Angkor ruin for sunrise
Pre Rup Temple is an alternative to the very popular Angkor Wat for sunrise. In fact, climb the stairs to the top of the temple for a memorable sunrise. On this particular day, the cloud cover was heavy so the sunrise was not as spectacular as it can be when it strikes the red sandstone, laterite and brick of Pre Rup. An added bonus in visiting here is that there aren’t hundreds of people as there can be at Angkor Wat. This morning, there was our small group and three others visitors.
Another thing. Pre Rup is a very compact temple that is easy to access. Angkor Wat is huge and sometimes loses intimacy, especially at sunrise when there are crowds of people trying to share the same expericience.
