Notes on the Geography of Cambodia (Angkor): East Mebon and Banteay Samre: Photo 2
Here's the island seen from the east and showing East Mebon's nested tiers with towers on the highest platform. Except for the towers of the Prasat Kravan, this is the oldest structure we've seen yet. It was built about 950 by Rajendravarman, whose capital, now called Preah Rup, lies due south of here, on the southern shore of the East Baray. The only part of it that survives is its temple-mountain, which looks much like East Mebon but rises higher.
