Devoted to Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu, the temple was constructed on the early 10th century under Yashovarman I. The visit of the temple involves climbing up 630 steps of a steep mountain. The view from the top is magical and offers 360-degree views of Angkor Wat and the Kulen Mountains. Note that the three prominent hills of the area (Phnom Bakheng, Phom Krom – 16 km distant in the South – and Phnom Bok – 14 km distant in the West) were all crowned with temples in the same period.
