Very impressive Phnom Chisor, an 11th century Khmer Empire temple located on a 133m high hill above Dok Por village, which requires a sweaty huff-and-puff hike up 461 steps. Commissioned by the Brahman king Suryavarman I, it was originally called Sri Suryaparvata or ‘the mountain of Surya‘, and was dedicated to Hindu gods Shiva and Vishnu.

Built from bricks and laterite, the temple has carved sandstone lintels which are worth a look that feature Indra, king of the gods, who is usually depicted on the three-headed white elephant, Airavata. Here Indra interestingly rides three individual elephants. Above Indra is the head of Kala, the lion-like monster with bulging eyes and fangs.

There are also sweeping views across the countryside that are gob-smacking during the wet monsoonal months from June to October when they are a luminous green.

One of our favorite Phnom Penh day trips is to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, a wild animal rescue and rehabilitation center, combined with a day trip to Tonle Bati, a pair of Angkor-era temples near a lake that’s incredibly popular with picnicking Cambodians.

Nature lovers will be in their element at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center, where animals rescued from the clutches of poachers and illegal traders are nursed back to health by Wildlife Alliance. Animals include elephants, monkeys, tigers, and sun bears.

Angkor Empire temples near Tonle Bati.

Tonle Bati is a small lake some 30km south of Phnom Penh. On weekends and holidays the floating bamboo pavilions fill with picnicking locals here for the cool breezes and kids splash about at the edge of the water and fool around in inner tubes. Locals also love to go fishing here.

Closest to the lake, just off the road to Takeo, is the dilapidated late 12th-early 13th century temple of Ta Prohm of Bati, built by King Jayavarman VII to house the Jayabuddhamahanatha statues. The flowering shrubs and trees, maintained by the elderly caretaker-gardeners (who will ask for a tip so have some small notes handy) make for pretty photos.

Yeay Peau temple, 150m north, isn’t as picturesque, as it strangely enough has a modern pagoda.
