What people are saying:

Play the small circle clockwise, then the Royal Bath is the last attraction to appear. This pool is very large, I thought there would be many people fishing on the side, but in fact there is no. There is a jungle in the distance, and there is no guardrail around it.

    Pretty, but not worth spending too much time at.

    Right across from Banteay Kdei, this still body of water is east-facing, and must offer some spectacular sunrise views. Any other time of the day, it is just a rippling lake, nice-looking, but not rea...

    Nice view

    This thousand year old water reservoir gives a beautiful view. So it is worth while to stop and look when you are passing by.

Additional Information


The Royal Baths were constructed at the end of the 12th century. They were built under the orders of Jayavarman VII. They were used to venerate the Boddhisatvas, and are "cloud worship" style buildings. They were also the location for holding bathing ceremonies, and, akin to in other large pools, there was originally a shrine in the middle. Today only the stone base of it remains. This location also has one of the best viewpoints to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat. There are not too many people who watch the sunrise here, so it is particularly peaceful and quiet. The scene set off by the sunshine on the surface of the pool is very beautiful.
