As with Banteay Prei, the temple is orientated east but would also have had a splendid view to the south across the Jayatataka Baray. Otherwise ditto for Banteay Prei — small but cute temple set in a very quiet wooded location — fairly ruined but some interesting carvings remaining, though most of them now lie on the ground.

Small temple, the exact purpose unknown.

Set on a laterite platform, there’s a laterite and sandstone wall and gopuras, with a tumbled down central sandstone tower. It only takes a few short minutes to have a quick wander around.
