The ruined temple of Wat Ek Phnom offers a look at the architecture of the Bayon period, and is also the site of an ornately designed modern temple. The Hindu temple was constructed in the 11th century during the rule of king Suryavarman I, and although in disrepair and heavily looted, remains highly regarded for its intricately carved lintels and pediments. Around the site, you'll also have a chance to inspect the modern temple, boasting pillars and intricately rendered frescoes, and a large white sitting Buddha.
