Banteay srei

Temple of the women. Called because the locals compare the intricate carvings with the beauty of the woman.

Otherwise known as isvarahpura. Dedicated to shiva, brahma and Vishnu. Shiva is a very popular god here. Temple was built in the tenth century but was broken by the Thai and a forest fire.
