Thma Bei Kaek (Khmer: ប្រាសាទ​ថ្មបាយក្អែក) is the ruins of a small sanctuary, found near the road just south of Angkor Thom South Gate.  All that remains is a brick platform supporting a door frame, with a lintel featuring Garuda, and a linga.

A sacred deposit consisting of five gold leaves arranged in a quincunx, the central leaf carrying the image of Nandi (Shiva's bull) was found here.
