One day Angkor Banteay Srei tour
Banteay Srei Temple is the most exquisite temple in the complex. Banteay Srei is the “Citadel of woman” or “Citadel of Beauty” presumably referring to its size and the delicacy of its decoration. Unlike the major sites at Angkor, Banteay Srei was not a royal temple. It was built not by the kings, but by Brahmin Priests often described in teams as the “Jewel of Khmer Art” Banteay Srei is a temple of great beauty, and compares with little else in Angkor. Its miniature scale almost always surprises visitors, and the near total decoration of its surfaces are exceptional. For its protection, the most inner spaces of the temple are closed to public.
