Tour Detail

Located 24 miles (38 km) northeast of Siem Reap, the Hindu temple of Banteay Srei lies off the beaten tourist path in Angkor but is a must-see for temple buffs. While small by Angkor standards, the 10-century red sandstone structure is famous for its intricate and well-preserved decorative carvings. French archaeologists who uncovered it during the early 20th century called it “a jewel in Khmer art.”

At the center of the complex are three temples, a central one honoring the Hindu god Shiva and two smaller ones for Vishnu and Brahma. It’s the only complex built from red sandstone and the only one not commissioned by a king, but instead by a royal adviser.

The pink sandstone temple was built by king Rajendravarman V in the 10th century. You’ll see that the walls of Banteay Srei temple are covered with the most deep and intricate carvings of any of the temples in Angkor.

This is one of my favorite ancient monuments/ruins in Siem Reap. The stone carvings are magnificent with great details. It's not as big as other temples but it's beauty is like no other.

This temple is perhaps the most majestic, smaller than others but built in Red Sandstone and some Cream Sandstone, thestone carving is incredible and after a thousand plus years ,s it was when built. Temple is much smaller than others but very beuatiful

Honestly, what’s to say? Words don’t describe the majesty. Just stunning. A must see before you die. Don’t miss visiting the out lying temples if you are in Cambodia.

An unusual temple for this region due to material used, which is pink stone. Lots of intricate carvings. It is relatively easy to walk around, less demanding than for example Angkor Wat. Do not miss this one!
