The Beauty Of Banteay Srei

Away from the bustle of the main Angkor complex is a little jewel of a temple, bursting with the best carvings of anything in the area. Maybe it's because the temple, dedicated to Shiva, was commissioned by a Brahman, not a king. The man had good taste.

Heading into the small temple.

The main towers. The temple is famous for its pink hued stone and intricate carvings covering most surfaces. Understatement.

Carvings details. Rich.
