UNESCO: Pre Rup Temple, Big Circuit, Angkor
After visiting Angkor for 4 days, I was sure to admire Stepped Pyramid than any other architectural styles. Climbing to each tier of large buildings, then explore all of them, finally stand on the peak for high angle view appreciation.
Similar pattern of Banteay Kdei, Ta Phrom, Ta Som and Preah Khan made ​​me templed-out. However, similarity of the Stepped Pyramids never made ​​me sick. Undoubtedly for Big Circuit route I took long hours at Pre Rup and East Mebon.

Apart from the enormous Preah Khan which King Jayavarman VII dedicated
to his father and two storey buildings with Roman a-like rounded columns that different from those in Angkor. Neak Pean is one of amazing architecture with creative excellence. This is both religious place and magnificent hospital built for public use.
