Northern Library of Angkor Wat

Northern Library of Angkor Wat
This library is one of the four in the complex of Angkor Wat. After entering the complex trough the entry tower we passed a library building on the left and one on the right side in excellent condition after a renovation from the Japanese Delegation.
Most likely the library functioned broadly as a religious shrine rather than strictly as repositories of manuscripts.
Freestanding buildings, they were normally placed in pairs on either side of the entrance to an enclosure, opening to the west.
