Hall building of Banteay Srei

Hall building of Banteay Srei
The temple's original name was Tribhuvanamahesvara - "great lord of the threefold world" - named as usual after the central image (in this case a Shaivite linga). The modern name, Banteay Srei - "citadel of the women" or "citadel of beauty" - is generally taken to refer to the intricacy of the carving and the tiny dimensions of the architecture.
