Structures in the innermost enclosure
The innermost enclosure measures 24 x 24 sq. m, with a brick wall enclosing it. Built inside this enclosure are the main temple structures, including two libraries, three sanctuary towers, and a mantapa, a covered hall attached to the middle sanctuary tower.
The image shows a view captured from the northwest side of the inner enclosure. The three sanctuary towers showing their west-facing facades are in the front, and the south library is on the right.
Located 16 miles northeast of Siem Reap, the Banteay Srei Temple is one of the finest temples in Cambodia. However, it is not well known, mainly because it is not near the Angkor Wat Temple, a World Heritage Site. Fortunately, it is located on the way to the Phnom Kulen mountain range. Combining both these visits would allow the visitors experience the beauty of the Banteay Srei carvings and enjoy the spectacular waterfalls in the Phnom Kulen mountains.
