The Main Tower
The inner courtyard, which is the most important part of
the sanctuary, houses three towers. The main tower,
which is made of white sandstone, was constructed in
the 11th - 12th centuries A.D. It faces the south, unlike
other Khmer structures which generally face the east.
It is understood that it faces south as it is in the direction
of Angkor in Kampuchea.
The other two towers are additional structures built in the
13th century A.D. The tower to the left of the principal
tower is known as Prang Bhramathat, made of laterite,
and constructed during the reign of King Jayavaraman VII.
Inside is a large sculpture of King Jayavarman VII in the
seating posture. The tower to the right is made of red
sandstone, and is connected by a path to another building
known as Ho Bhram or Brahman shrine.
