This Camdodian temple is undoubtedly a woman. You realize it even before finding out the translation of its name. Banteay Srey means a refuge of women. It was built for them.
It is small and elegant like a genuine woman.
Every line is well balanced, every angle is magnetic.
It is neat and clean like a genuine woman.
It has smooth and soft skin like every woman has.
Though everything is made of stone, one can think that it is a soft sponge until touches it.
Banteay Srey is thrifty. It has not lost any of its decoration after many years.
Banteay Srey Temple kept its stone carving better than all the temples in Cambodia.
This place is worth visiting at daybreak. Not Angkor Wat with its huge crowd, but Banteay Srey. Because it will be not an excursion, it will be a date.
When you go for a date, do you take three dozen of friends with you?!
