Location: Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Banteay Srei or Banteay Srey is a 10th-century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and lies 35km northeast of Siem Reap. It is a little off the beaten track so a little quieter than some of the other temples.
Even if you’re feeling pretty templed-out, you’ll probably be captivated by it. It’s built of fine-grained rose-pink sandstone, it’s the most elaborately decorated of all Angkor’s monuments, its walls, false doors, lintels and exotic soaring pediments all richly embellished with floral motifs and Ramayana scenes. Comprising just a single level, it’s positively diminutive compared with the region’s state-temples.
The temple contains lots of these little shrines often tended by nuns where you can light a joss-stick if you wish for (of course) a small donation.
