Fodor's Expert Review Phnom Banan
In the countryside 25 km (15 miles) south from the city, this 11th-century hilltop temple has five impressive towers and is sometimes referred to as "the mini Angkor Wat." Reaching the temple involves a hike up 350 or so steps. Tuk-tuks from Battambang charge $10–$15 for the round-trip. There is a mystical little cave round the side of the hill whose waters are supposed to induce visions.
