    Banteay Srie Temple

  Banteay Srei Temple is located in Banteay Srei village, Banteay Srei commune, Banteay Srei district, about 37 kilometers from Siem Reap provincial town. The enchanting temple of Banteay Srei is nearly everyone's favorite site. The special charm of this temple lies in its remarkable state of preservation, small size and excellence of decoration.

Banteay Srei temple was built by a Brahmin Yajnavarha with his younger brother in 967AD in the middle of 10th century. While at that period, king Jayavarman V was still very young about 15 years of age, when his father king RajendravarmanII had died. Thus , all administrative affairs and religious practices include to build temples was under organized by his guru Brahmin Yajnavarha. Brahmin Yajnavarha was also a Royal blood who was a grandson of the king Hurshavarman I.

  Banteay Srei was a new name which meaning in khmer is “ Citadel of woman”.But according to inscription on the door pier of its structure tells us that original name of this temple was Isvarapura which meaning in Cambodia is the city of Shiva. Thu, from its origin name we can tell that Banteay Srei temple was a Hindu Temple and dedicate to Shiva.

 Banteay Srei temple is just only temple in the Angkor period that was built of the pink and yellow sandstone. The pink and yellow sandstone are high quality material more than the gray and green sandstone that used to built of Angkor Wat and Bayon so on .AS pink and yellow sandstone are so hard , that is why the carving of Banteay Srei are still good condition and very exquisite .
