Itinerary

9:00am – Pick Up and Driver to Phnom Banan

Battambang is Cambodia’s second-largest city and the capital of Battambang Province, which was founded in the 11th century. The name Battambang or Batdambang, literally means “loss of stick” referring to a legend of the Preah Bat Dambang Kranhoung (Kranhoung Stick King). On this Battambang Temple Tour, you will see the two most popular temples in Battambang.

The tour will start first by visiting Phnom Bannon Hill and climb the 337 steps to reach the Bannon temple. Banan Temple is originally 11th century-built, though it saw a Buddhist makeover during the 12th century and reign of Jayarvarman VII. The temple is constructed on top of a hill overlooking the Sangkar river and there’s a 358-step climb to the top, where five towers precariously remain.

In the afternoon city tour by visiting Ek Phnom, an impressive but extremely dilapidated temple situated next to a large pond and is behind a contemporary 28m high Buddha statue.
