English: Banteay Srei (or Banteay Srey) is a 10th century temple of Khmer architecture dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
  • Located in the area of Angkor in Cambodia, at 13.59 N, 103.96667 E, it lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km (15 miles) north-east of the main group of temples that once belonged to the medieval capitals of Yasodharapura and Angkor Thom.
  • Consecrated in 967 C.E., Banteay Srei was the only major temple at Angkor not built by a monarch; its construction is credited to a courtier named Yajnyavahara, who served as a counsellor to King Rajendravarman.
