Build in 10th century, Banteay Srie is dedicated to Hindu Lord Shiva.
It’s the prettiest of all the Angkor Temples for two reasons! First, the use of red sandstone in construction and secondly the intricate carvings which are so well preserved!
This temple has one of the finest carvings among any Angkor Temples!
Banteay Srei means ‘Citadel of the Women’ and its frequently referred to as the Lady Temple! Its also famous as jewel of the crown in Angkorian Art!
This is one of the few temples not build by a king! Its also smaller in size and scale as compared to the other temples!
Its a bit far from other temples but worth a visit! Should take about an hour or so!
