Prasat Suor Prat

Prasat Suor Prat is one of the most breath-taking sites within the Angkor Archaeological Park. Located within the walls of Angkor Thom on the Northern side, Prasat Suor Prat consists of twelve nearly identical sandstone towers constructed in post-Bayon style. This site

was constructed during the early 13th century by Indravarman II, and served as a way of settling legal disputes. Apparently, the belligerent parties were kept in seperate towers for several days, and the one to emerge in ill-health was the loser, guilty by divine decree. This fascinating story behind the site has landed its reputation as one of tourists favourite sites, and boasts aesthetic photography opportunity. It's best to visit in the afternoon light as it offers the best backdrop for photography, and you could easily spend up to an hour here.
