Prasat Bei

Prasat Bei

Constructed : 10 th century
Religion: Hindu
Style : Bakheng
King : Yasovarman I ★ 889 - 910 ★
Location : Just after Baksei Chamkrong and right before the bridge of the Southern Door of Angkor Thom. The whole of these three monuments can be done by walking.

Comment : This whole of three small brick towers close to Baksei Chamkrong does not miss a charm, and the proximity of ditch of Angkor Thom gives him much freshness but the visitors in a hurry will not be delayed there. The three towers are aligned in the North-South axis, facing the East. Only the tower of the medium is completed, the two others are truncated. The representation of Indra on a three heads elephant is the remarkable part of this building. There is an Angkor Thom ring moat side, it is quiet and also atmosphere is good. It is the ruins which can taste the beauty of the brick pattern of the Khmer construction.
