Banteay Srei – Hand-Carved Temple

In Khmer, Banteay Srei means “city of women” and while small, it is one of the jewels of Khmer art due to the outstanding quality of its sculpted décor, carved from red sandstone. For me this is the most beautiful temple of all of them. You must not miss this one.

Compared to all other huge temples we saw, this seemed like a doll house at 1st glance & I was wondering if the long tuk-tuk drive to see this was worth it.
But it is exquisite in detailing and well worth the visit. There are excellent photo opportunities at this temple. Really a “must-see”.
