Banteay Srei Temple

Banteay Srei is a 10th-century Hindu temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia dedicated to Shiva and Parvati. Located in the area of Angkor, it lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km (16 mi) north-east of the main group of temples that once belonged to the medieval capitals of Yaśodharapura and Angkor Thom. Banteay Srei is built largely of red sandstone. The buildings themselves are miniature in scale compared to the standards of Angkorian construction. It is known as the “jewel of Khmer art”.
