Prasat Kra Chap

Prasat Kra Chap is a compact temple comprising two rather well preserved gopuras and the ruins of five towers arranged in a quincun. Thanks to the surviving inscriptions on the doorframes, we know that in 928 was dedicated the Tribhuvanadeva, a linga representation of Shiva. The pediments in the two gopuras are of a style similar to that of Banteay Srei, near Angkor, built 40 years later.
