Little is known about Prasat Bei (Khmer: ប្រាសាទបី, meaning 'three towers') except that it was never completed.
The temple consists of three brick towers on a laterite base with a single staircase facing east. The central tower contained a linga. The south and central lintels feature Indra on Airavata. The lintel on the north tower, where only a general layout has been outlined, shows us that carvers executed their work on-site.
