Comment : This small temple is presented in the form of a one Ta Prohm in miniature. Some sculptures are in good condition, but especially, the tree which pushed on East Gopura is to be seen absolutely.

Road side (west side) the small tower gate which has the human surface (it is on the peripheral wall) to be, here entering, when it keeps advancing, exceeding at one time the ring moat mark, it reaches to the west tower gate of the inside perimeter wall.

Furthermore that is a corridor first, on the center is a central hall. Walking around the corridor generally, seeing, it means to walk. It is the ruins which atmosphere is good and does cosily.
