Banteay Srei

Banteay Srei is the fourth of the 'Banteay' ruins, and like the others is constructed of mainly sandstone which has left it more deteriorated than most of the other ruins in the Angkorian region. It is

dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and was constructed by Rajendravarman in the late 10th century. It is located 37kms North of Siem Reap and is one of the Northern-most ruins of the Angkor Archaeological Park. It's decorated in beautiful sandstone carvings which are still largely visible, and are actually some of the finest examples of Angkorian art. The pink sandstone changes colour throughout the different lights of the day. The colours are most beautiful before 10:30am and after 2:00pm. Due to it's remote location in relation to many of the other temples, drivers to the ruins usually charge extra on top of their daily charge, but it is well worth it due to the art it encompasses.
