Preah Dark - Banteay Srei Tour

Built by King Suryavarman II, the creator behind Angkor Wat, the temple has been extensively restored. The temple is unique because a lack of available sandstone led to the use of laterite (rock rich in Iron & aluminum) for the roofed corridors. The pediments (triangular section) above the inner doors, include some of the most detailed carving from the Angkor period.

Preah Ko was erected by Indravarman the 1st in the late 9th century and dedicated to his ancestors by the King in 880. Bakong is the largest and considered the most interesting of the Roluos group temples and the site measures 900 metres by 700 metres, and consists of three concentric enclosures separated by two moats.

Lolei, is the northernmost temple of the Roluos group and was dedicated it to Shiva and to members of the royal family. It was built on an islet in the center of a large reservoir (now rice fields) by Yasovarman the 1st who was the founder to the first city at Angkor.
