Banteay Kdei

Banteay Kdei

Many tourists could miss a visit to the temple of Banteay Kdei. Their loss: a land spacious and shady Temple, little frequented by tourists, so make of Banteay Kdei an ideal place for your time visits in order to benefit to the maximum from the atmosphere.

Banteay Kdei is located southeast of Ta Prohm, a complex semi-ruines of four speakers with the largest measuring 297 m by 1640 the prolific Mr. King Jayavarman VII completed Banteay Kdei in the early 13th century. Two different Angkor-Bayon - artistic styles are evident in the design of the temple.

The temple itself is in a State of rather advanced disrepair: its soft sandstone structure has collapsed in some places, and the outer wall was rebuilt with reused stones. And because changes made by the Hindu Kings later, Banteay Kdei doesn't have the symmetry of the most popular temples such as Angkor Wat.
