Tuk-tuks charge around $20 USD to go to Sambor Prei Kuk Temple, wait for passengers to visit the temple, and then complete the return trip. The best place in Kampong Thom to find a tuk-tuk or motorbike taxi is the taxi rank in front of the Arunras Hotel.

History of Sambor Prei Kuk Temple

Sambor Prei Kuk Temple was founded in the 7th Century and consists of around 150 Hindu temples in area of around 1,000 acres, once completely enclosed by a perimeter wall. Most of the temples in the central part of the complex are grouped into three clusters, each of which were also once fully enclosed by walls. Sambor Prei Kuk Temple has not been restored and the temples are ruins.

The temple has, nonetheless, been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the historical importance of this pre-Angkor period religious centre. Some of the imagery discovered at the temple relates to ancient Hindu religious sects, particularly Shaivism, and also to local religious beliefs that pre-date the arrival of both Hinduism and Buddhism in Cambodia.
