About Banteay Srei, Siem Reap
This is one of the most important temples in the Angkor region. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple was built in the 10th century, but it still stands tall and well maintained. The walls are low and the structures that it surrounds are peaked. Deep red sandstone has been dominantly used. The curves in the design are so intricate that it is said that only women could have carved them. These relief carvings, through interesting order of scenes, tell the stories of Hindu mythology. This is one of those few temples in the region that have tried to innovate staying in he realms of the Khmer art. History enthusiasts will love this place. Children will be awestruck by the stories that the walls tell.

Banteay Srei, Siem Reap Reviews
Another great temple visit. If you are into photography, make sure you catch this one very early in the morning for the light.
One of the best places we went even with the pouring rain. We were well kitted out but his from the worst of it in one of the restaurant cafés by the entrance where the staff entertained my one year old son while we tucked into some simple but delicious cuisine. Well worth the trip out. Get there early for an almost private viewing. It was busy by the time we left at 09:00.
Probably the finest craftsmanship. Very nice but about 30 min on a tut tut from Angkor Wat. Bring a hat out umbrella during midday because you will start filling the heat as I am now, sitting under a tree and drinking water.
Endure/enjoy an hour rough tuktuk and keep the video rolling thru the village traffic. Stop at the Cambodian Landmine museum & donate generously! arrive at 5:03 pm sharp! have $2 handy for pink gargoyle monkey closeups.... ;)
this is a nice place where you can enjoy a relaxing moment!
