Banteay Srei is one of the smallest Hindu temples in the Angkor region. Small but beautiful! Due to its ornamentation, it is one of the most ornate. It was built in the 10th century largely of red sandstone. It is idyllically situated about 23 kilometres northeast of Angkor Wat on the upper Siem Reap River and is not so crowded by tourists. The name Banteay Srei means "Citadel of Women" or "Citadel of Beauty".
Since 2004, the Banteay Srei temple has been restored with financial support from Switzerland.

I have removed an annoying prohibition sign.
We were deeply impressed by the tranquillity that this temple sends out. There are hardly any tourists here. The site is so beautifully situated, you can't take bad photos. The selection of the 12 best photos was therefore somewhat difficult.
