Photographer's Note

Well away from Angkor Wat and a long tuk tuk ride is the beautiful almost miniature temple complex of Banteay Srei. It is all on one level with exquisite carving in perfect condition over all surfaces. You find it hard to believe that building started in 967!
The stone used has a pinkish/reddish hue to it. The name of this Hindu temple, dedicated to Shiva, means "Citadel of the Women".
