The north sanctuary tower is in the inner enclosure of the Banteay Sei Temple located 16 miles northeast of Siem Reap, Cambodia. It has multi-level pediments. The bas-relief on the bottom pediment depicts Varuna, the sky god, riding three hamsas (swans) and the lintel depicts Kubera carried by a man (Kubera’s vehicle is a man). The doorway has a beautifully decorated false door. On both sides of the door, devatas are guarding it.
