These four sandstone temples, Bayon style, were Buddhist and dedicated to the Bodhisatta Lokesvara, as was Bayon and the city. Cross-shaped in plan and facing the east side. The sanctuary surrounded by a tower and the original stelae with a poem praising the king were housed in small adjacent structures.

The sanctuary surrounded by a tower and the original stelae with a poem praising the king were housed in small adjacent structures. Each stele has four different authors. Today, these are housed in the Conservation office. Some of the originally Buddhist pediments were disfigured in the late 13th century during the reign of King Jayavarman VIII and the Buddha figure was transformed into a linga.
