Explore Prasat Kravan

Prasat Kravan, Angkor - Search Nearby - Added by John Maurizi

Prasat Kravan is a worthwhile side trip in the small circuit. It offers a glimpse into the Khmer style of construction and to see up close the erosion of inscriptions taking place.

Prasat Kravan is a small temple in an open area south of Banteay Kdei and Sras Srang.  The temple is a row of five brick towers with the central tower being the tallest. The towers are aligned north to south and are constructed

in the Khmer style. Inside the central tower you will find the best preserved carvings however, much of the carvings at Kravan have eroded. There is some signage describing the causes of the erosion. Not only time, water and wind but visitors touching the inscriptions in the doorways pose a very big threat.

Being that it is small, it does not take long to check out this temple.  It is worth a visit to see the interior of the central tower and to get an idea of the impact people have on the erosion of these temples.
