Way into the Banteay Srei complex

Way into the Banteay Srei complex
Banteay Srei is a 10th century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The temple complex is built largely of red sandstone, a medium that lends itself to the elaborate decorative wall carvings which are still observable today. The buildings themselves are miniature in scale, unusually so when measured by the standards of Angkorian construction. These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and have led to its being widely praised as a "precious gem", or the "jewel of Khmer art".
