Bantay Srei Sunrise

Banteay Srei is a much smaller complex than Angkor Wat. Located about 25 kilometers (16 miles) northeast of the main temple complex, the biggest difference to me was the construction material. Built of red sandstone, the entire structure seems to glow at sunrise (and presumably sunset). The detail of the carvings, while impressive at the more popular areas of Angkor Wat, is nearly unbelievable at Banteay Srei.
