Built upon the orders of Udayadityavarman II, it is thought that perhaps the central sanctuary here was constructed of wood, as that would explain why there is so little left.

One impressive find though was a massive bronze statue of Vishnu found in 1936. The statue is now at the National Museum in Phnom Penh.
