Cella

1 min read

A cella is the inner sacred chamber of a sanctuary, or prasat.

It is a small room that housed either the statue of a divinity or, most often in Angkor, a linga, the symbolic representation of Shiva.  Cellas were not meant to accommodate a congregation, but rather just the high priests and perhaps sometimes the king and a few of his selected dignitaries.
