Tep Pranam

Tep Pranam

Constructed : 9th century
Religion : Buddhist
Style : Mixed
King : Yasovarman I ★ 889 - 910 ★
Location : Angkor Thom, behind the Terrace of Leper King.

Comment : Here is a beautiful example of a building which will have evolved during centuries and of the builders. The first Buddha would have been built by Yasovarman 1st during the construction of first Angkor. But the beautiful stone alley which leads to this Buddha him would be posterior, as well as the statues which decorate this alley.

Today, the statue of the Buddha is covered with a contemporary construction which is not better effect, but one will like nevertheless to press foot these flagstones which have to see passing so much from world, anonymities, noble or Kings!

Temple Detail : Tep Pranam is the ruins where the court is located septentrional. You can see the lion image on both sides of the going/participating road whose width is wide.
