Prasat Bei located near and after Baksei Chamkrong and right before the bridge of the southern door of Angkor Thom. The whole of these three monuments can be done by walking.
About The Temple
Prasat Bei was designed with three brick towers standing as a row on a single sandstone platform. Those three towers symbolized the three main Hindu gods, Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma. Its lintels have very beautiful carvings. There is Indra’s figure ridding on a three headed elephant Aravata. Prasat Bei was designed with the typical Khmer architectural style of the 6th century to the 10th century. This temple structure was not completely finished because the king was killed two years after he was crowned as king, by Harshavarman I who was his brother.
There are regular flights from Singapore, Vientiane and Ho Chi Minh City. Most of the visitors arrive by flight from Bangkok and Phnom Penh to reach Siem Reap. Cambodia is well connected with Laos, Vietnam and Thailand via roads. The most common mode of transport is bus. You can check out a number of bus services. Phnom Penh can be reached aboard one of the passenger ferries plying between Chau Doc (in Vietnam) and the Cambodian capital.
