Site Size & Condition: Ancient Reservoir Prasat Angkor Wat Srah Khang Cheung (ប្រាសាទអង្គរវត្ត ស្រះខាងជើង - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ong-kor Waht S'rah Karhng Jerng)

The north pond is located after the Northern Library about 30m to the north of the main causeway leading to the main temple of Prasat Angkor Wat. The small pond measures about 80m x 50m and is identical to the southern pond.

This location is one of the most favourite spots for the famous Angkor Wat sunrise, with amazing reflective views of the central temple.
