1 min read

Date: Early 13th century
Style: Bayon
King: Indravarman II (reign 1220 – 1243/1270 CE)
Cult: Mahayana Buddhist

 

Banteay Torp Temple (or Banteay Toap, Khmer: ប្រាសាទ​បន្ទាយ​ទ័ព, pronounced Tor-op, meaning 'Fortress of the Army’) is a fascinating little temple site.  There are five impressive sanctuaries, similar to the one seen at Palilay Temple.

It was built under Indravarman II, and is the largest of the few temples built after the reign of Jayavarman VII.  Built soon after the Banteay Chhmar Temple complex as a tribute to the Khmer army for their defeat of the Chams.

Banteay Torp is located about 12 km (7.5 miles) south of Banteay Chhmar Temple.
