Banteay Samre

Banteay Samre is a Hindu temple at Angkor, Cambodia located east of East Baray. Constructed in the 12th century by the King Suryavarman II and dedicated to Vishnu, a Hindu god preserving the universe, the temple is built in the similar style of Angkor Wat: buildings on a raised base with horizontal moldings and adorned with divine figures circled by lotus buds.

The name Samre refers to a pre-Khmer ethnic group but details of other information haven't been found yet. The location is a bit out of the way, but it's definitely worth the extra effort and our private car will take you there easily. Using the same material of Banteay Srei, Banteay Samre is all on one level with an outer and inner wall, each attaches a gallery. The inner courtyard is completely dry even during the west season though it was used to hold water back in time. There are small libraries on the way to the central sanctuary, whose exterior is especially elaborately decorated with finials on the peak of the gable.

You can observe villages and paddies while transferring to this site. On the way back we could stop off at Banteay Srei. In the vicinity of the region there are many more to visit: Angkor Thom, Bakheng HillTonle Sap Lake, Ta Keo, etc.. If you want to escape big crowds of people in famous attractions and prefer to see the quieter, contact us to tailor-make a trip to Banteay Samre!
