Neak Pean, on the same small road and immediately after Prasat Prei.

Comments : Bantey Prei, the "fortress of the forest", is a small temple of Bayon style which presents an air of family with Ta Prohm but in much smaller and especially much less visited. Few tourists do not venture to make this small tour what makes of it a very calm and resting place. The corridor the central hall remains, also the mark of the ring moat is recognized. The large wood stimulates inside the corridor and stands.
