Bakong Tours

Bakong

One of the earliest temples in the region, Bakong was built in tiers within a strict geometric matrix, a style recognizable in the later Angkor Wat. Though significantly smaller than that complex, Bakong has a charm all its own.

The central temple rises on 5 tiers and was dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. It dates to 881 AD, though the tower which forms its focal point was added much later.

Around two dozen graceful, free-standing “satellite” temples dot the grounds in various states of repair, some garnished with jungle growth. Stupas reflect the temple’s later embrace of Buddhism, while an adjacent monastery ensures the site retains its spiritual significance into the present day.

Practical Info

Bakong, along with Lolei and Preah Ko, is in the Roluos group of temples, off National Highway 6 which heads west out of Siem Reap.

Angkor Wat Admission Ticket

Save the hassle of visiting the ticket office by buying your 1-, 3-, or 7-day Angkor Archaeological Park pass in advance. Rather than waiting in line to purchase your pass on the day—particularly inconvenient if you’re heading to Angkor Wat for sunrise—your pass is delivered to your hotel the night before your visit, meaning you can go directly to temples such as Ta Prohm and Banteay Samre without wasting time.
