Angkor Temple Profile: Preah Khan

Name: Preah Khan

Built: 12th century

Conservation Body: World Monuments Fund

Distinctive feature: wide moat and outer walls guarded by 5-headed nagas

Visitor's note: This temple is still mostly in ruins, but is expansive and gorgeous. While parts of Angkor Wat and Ta Promh are sectioned off and obviously very well-traveled, Preah Khan feels like an exploration.
