Bat Chum


Dedicated in 960AD during the reign of Rajendravarman by the only known royal architect Kavindrarimathana. The same architect who was responsible for the royal palace, Prasat Pre Rup and East Mebon. Although his king religiion was hindu, his was Buddhist as is this temple. Rarely visited by tourists, thankfully, it get much needed repair as you can see here. There are still fine lintles, door colonettes and beautiful inscriptions on each door jam for all 3 shrines.
