Siem Reap Province - General Information

Constructed: 9th-17th century C.E.
Religion: Theravada Buddhist
Style: Post-Bayon

Small, ruined towers standing in a quiet section of Angkor Thom. Inscriptions indicate that the site was used as early as the 9th century, but the present structure is post Angkorian. The materials from the 10th and 11th were reused for the current structure which was probably assembled in the late 13th century. The few carving that still exist are Buddhist some dating as late as the 17th century.
