Banteay Kdei Temple

Siem Reap Province - General Information
Map

Constructed: Late 12th - Early 13th century C.E.
Religion: Buddhist
King/Patron: Jayavarman VII
Style: Angkor Wat/Bayon

Built in the late twelfth to early thirteenth century during the reign of Jayavarman VII, Banteay Kdei is known only as a Buddhist temple constructed in the Bayon style.  It has been occupied by monks at various intervals over the centuries, but the inscription stone has never been discovered so it is mystery; unknown to whom the temple is dedicated. 

Its structures are contained within two successive enclosure walls, and consist of two concentric galleries from which emerge towers, preceded to the east by a cloister.  Like all the other ruins in Angkor, the carvings are captivating.
