Banteay Samre is a rectangular shaped temple, resembling a small building with a larger pyramid-like tower in the centre. There is very minimal vegetation in the area which makes it suitable to visit any time of the day, and can hold your interest for 30-60 minutes. Like the other Banteay ruins, Samre was constructed with sandstone which has left it in poor condition, but some of the sandstone carvings and trimmings are still very visible.
