Banteay Kdie means 'Citadel of Monks' cells' and is the relaxing starting point of day two at the Angkor Archaeological Park. Believed to have been built in the 13th century, it is similar in style to Ta Prohm but on a smaller scale. Unlike most of the Temples in the park, there is no record of why Banteay Kdei was built, or by whom, with no inscriptions having ever been found at the site. Today, it is one of the quieter temples in the Park and visitors can stroll through the complex taking in the spiritual surroundings with Buddhist Monks and Nuns seen praying in the Temple. Its entrance towers also contain face statues, similar to the ones at the Bayon Temple, providing ample opportunities for photographs. Banteay Kdei is also a popular alternative for sunrise, with it being significantly quieter than Angkor Wat. (Photo Credit: JJ Ying, unsplash.com)
