Mystery of lost civilisations
Siem reap, Cambodia 🇰🇭
Banteay Srei is a 10th-century temple about 30 km northeast of Siem Reap. It is notable for its fine intricate decorative carvings on rose pink sandstone.
The buildings themselves are miniature in scale, unusually so when measured by the standards of Angkorian construction.
These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and have led to its being widely praised as a"precious gem", or the "jewel of Khmer art."
