Five small temples set in a quiet area opposite the Terrace of the Leper King. Most of the construction is from the 12th century but one of the temples is Buddhist and may date from the 14th century. The temples are in rough shape but there are interesting carved lintels scattered on the ground. Located in central Angkor Thom but not as touristed as the other temples in the area. Peaceful little jungle area behind the group.
