Bantseay Kdei

Banteay Kdei, meaning – a Citadel of Chambers, is a Buddist temple in Angkor, Cambodia, and easily my favourite temple.20161107_090117.jpg

I visited this temple at nine  on a Monday morning with almost no other visitors. It started to rain, which to me, added great atmosphere.20161107_092937

For me the charm and beauty of this temple is the jungle surrounding the largely unrestored buildings. 20161107_090132

This temple was  built using an inferior grade of sandstone and using poor construction techniques, leading to much of the deterioration visible today.

Bantseay Kdei is part of the small circuit of Angkor and an Angkor pass is needed to enter.
