Pulei Temple is completely a temple I accidentally discovered when I was visiting the Preah Sword Temple. It is not eye-catching, but it is very primitive, because there are very few people here, and it is not in a fully open state yet, but we You can go in and take a look at the scenery inside. Although they are all plain buildings, because of the small number of people here, you can see many interesting scenes, such as wildly growing trees, and relying on extras on the wall Tree of strength and continued survival
Located on a small hill several meters high in the northeast corner of Preah Khan Temple, surrounded by woods, tourists are extremely scarce, and the restoration work is suspended for this reason. Pulei Temple was built during the period of King Jayavarman VII from the end of the 12th century to the beginning of the 13th century as a Buddhist temple. At present, the East Gate, the Tibetan Scripture Pavilion, the Central Tower and a few surrounding walls are preserved. The lintel reliefs and the sculptures of fairies and false windows on the walls are still clearly visible, belonging to the Bayan style.
Pulei Temple is not as famous as Preah Khan Temple, but the building is also very beautiful.
It is very similar to the name of Banteay Srei, and also has Banteay (meaning castle), and Samre refers to a ethnic minority that originally lived in Phnom Kulen. It is said to belong to the era of Suryavarman II (AD 1113-1150). The Banteay Samre (Banteay Samre) has a base of one meter high and originally had a moat built around it, like the Aral Sea surrounding Mount Sumeru. There are few tourists and the environment is very quiet. Entering Bantisema Temple, there are remnants of the cloister stone pillars on both sides of the walkway. These corridors originally had wooden roofs, but they no longer exist.

The main central temple is well preserved, but the surrounding buildings have basically collapsed. From the front, the top of the main temple has a double-layered lotus shape. From the back of the temple, the double-layer lotus no longer exists.
