Our next temple is Banteay Samre’. This 12th century temple is not on the regular tourist trail and, for the most part, we have it to ourselves.The outside wall consists of tightly laid laterite blocks. Usually we have seen this used only as a base material that was once well-hidden beneath brick and stucco. Here, the rough stone provides a stark contrast to the deeply carved structures it surrounds.
