Prasat Top East (Khmer: ប្រាសាទតុប ខាងលើត) is the last construction in Angkor for which a precise foundation date (1295) is set in stone.  This inscription can be seen on the temple's left door jamb.  The temple was dedicated to a guru named Jayamangalartha and to his mother at the end of Jayavarman VIII's reign.
