world pictures Cambodia (Angkor): Ta Prohm and Vicinity

The oldest monument seen yet, these are the sanctuaries of Prasat Kravan, southeast of Banteay Kdei. They were built of brick, consecrated in 921, and reconstructed about 1960. Only two towers remain, the central and south; the central one is more complete. Its interior contains reliefs of Vishnu; the north sanctuary has reliefs of his consort, Lakshmi. The other sanctuaries were never decorated.
