Day 2:Banteay Srei Group full day
Located 24 miles (38 km) northeast of Siem Reap, the Hindu temple of Banteay Srei lies off the beaten tourist path in Angkor but is a must-see for temple buffs. While small by Angkor standards, the 10-century red sandstone structure is famous for its intricate and well-preserved decorative carvings. French archaeologists who uncovered it during the early 20th century called it a jewel in Khmer art.
At the center of the complex are three temples, a central one honoring the Hindu god Shiva and two smaller ones for Vishnu and Brahma. Its the only complex built from red sandstone and the only one not commissioned by a king, but instead by a royal adviser.
The pink sandstone temple was built by king Rajendravarman V in the 10th century. Youll see that the walls of Banteay Srei temple are covered with the most deep and intricate carvings of any of the temples in Angkor.
In addition to Banteay Srei, youll visit Pre Rup, a mountain temple also dating from the 10th century and featuring 6 tall towers. and visitEast Mebon;
