The Preah Vihear province, in northern Cambodia, is home to three of the most important legacies of the Angkorian era – the Prasat Preah Vihear temple, the 10th century capital of Koh Ker and the relatively isolated Preah Khan temple. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Preah Vihear temple, in particular, is known for its stone carvings and is an outstanding example of Khmer architecture. The temple is set atop the Dângrêk Mountains and offers stunning views of the surrounding environs.
