Owner description: This 10th-century complex consists of low walls instead of the typical spires of Angkor.

This grouping creates a remarkably intact temple built by Brahmins in honor of women. Very different from the temples in and around Angkor Wat in the Archeological park. We combined this site with Kbal Spean River Carvings. It is about 1.5 hours in a tuk-yuk, (offering close up views of local living and breezes). Next to Bayon this is probably my favorite Temple Complex. The pink sandstone still survives and the number of visitors is vastly fewer making the walk around and through the buildings more relaxed. The art work, carvings and bas relief are just remarkable.

I intereste Banteay Srei Temple more than Ankor. It is little far fron Siem Reap and need little drive. The environment of the temple is so quiet. The temple is very beautiful and can see the original colour , curving and statue.

One of my favorite temples in Angkor. There are many beautiful stories and philosophy in each building! Get yourself a local guide for better understanding the temple!

Banteay Srei, the only Angkor temple not constructed by the Monarchy, rather by Brahmin Priests, is a real jewel in the jungle. The exquisite carvings and sculpting are really something to behold -- unmissable.
