|Date:||Late 12th - early 13th century|
|King:||Jayavarman VII (reign 1181 – 1220 CE)|
The temple features three sandstone sanctuaries aligned on a north-south axis, a layout typical of the brick temples built during the 10th century CE but then abandoned. The only other 12th century temple featuring this arrangement is Banteay Chhmar Temple, which was also built under Jayavarman VII.
Banteay Thom Temple features some interesting carvings, but its Buddha images were destroyed during the Hindu reaction.
