Savour sublime carvings at Banteay Srei
The 10th century temple of Banteay Srei, known as the 'Citadel of Women', is one of the prettiest temples with intricately detailed carvings and decorative features painstakingly carved into the pink sandstone. It's also one of the most compact and can easily be explored in an hour or two. You can make a day trip of the journey out there (25km from Siem Reap
) by combining it with visits to the nearby Landmine Museum and Banteay Srei Butterfly Centre.
