Built a few years before Preah Ko, this temple is also dedicated to Shiva. The temple mountain in its centre represents Mount Meru. Not the one in Tanzania, but the mythical one that represents the centre of all universes in Hindu mythology. The high relief (deeply carved as opposed to bas-relief, which are shallowly carved) door lintels here were exquisite.
