Banteay Srei

Banteay Srei2

Banteay Srei is considered by many to be the artistic jewel of Angkor Wat. Although a relatively small temple, it contains some of the finest examples of stone carving anywhere on earth. [NOTE: Banteay Srei means “Citadel of Women”, probably owing to the many devatas carved into the red sandstone walls].
