Banteay Prei

The work of a local ruler?

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Yet another Jayavarman VII era temple, though as with Banteay Thom this one would have been situated in the suburbs or surrounding villages of Angkor Thom and so may well have been the work of a local ruler.

Banteay Prei lies just to the north side of the Grand Circuit, roughly between Neak Pean and Ta Som and for its peaceful wooded location and some interesting carvings it's worth a quick peek if you're passing by. A central sandstone clad tower has interesting lintels, and there's two secondary laterite shrines plus remnants of a surrounding wall.
