What people are saying:

The sister temple is the most popular temple in Siem Reap. The two Buddha statues enshrined in the temple are two sisters. The taller one is the older sister, the shorter one is the younger sister. It is said that this sister temple was built to commemorate the two sisters' heroic sacrifices in the 16th century when they fought against the Siamese army to defend their families and the country. The locals thanked them and built a temple here to commemorate the two sisters. Legend has it that the sister temple was originally built elsewhere, and the two Buddha statues were robbed by enemy countries many times during the wars in ancient times, and their whereabouts were unknown until the King of Cambodia dreamed that the two sisters had a dream to tell them that they were suffering in Tonle Sap. People go to the rescue and hope to live next to the king after being saved. So the next day, the king sent someone to find the location in the dreamland. He really found two Buddha statues in the lake, and he salvaged them ashore, and rebuilt the temple on the current site next to the king's palace. The Sisters Temple is located in the center of Siem Reap, with the Royal Park behind it, the Old French Quarter across the road to the south, and the King's Palace next to the temple. After visiting the sister temples, you can go to the Old French Quarter. The high-end residences, restaurants, and restaurants of Siem Reap are basically gathered here.

    Nice shrine not far from the river. I'm not the religious type but it's always busy. There's plenty of shade

    Nice shrine not far from the river. I'm not the religious type but it's always busy. There's plenty of shade due to lots of trees

    Nothing really special

    Right next to the royal residence and supposedly visited by the king. Nice but not special - worth a quick look if you happen to be around.
