After watching the sunrise over Sras Srang walk on over to Banteay Kdei. The eastern entrance to this temple is just across the street. Construction on this temple started in the mid 12th century and went through to the 13th century for King Jayavarman VII. Multiple vendors can be found in the area next to the pool at Sras Srang so it?s an option for a breakfast or lunch visit. It?s also a lesser temple so it won?t be as overrun with other visitors like Angkor Wat or Ta Prohm, in fact we visited this temple just after sunrise at nearby Sras Srang and only saw two other tourists on our visit. Driving by later in the afternoon there were many more people streaming through.

Directions: The east entrance to this temple is located directly west of Sras Srang.
