Lolei (Khmer: ប្រាសាទលលៃ) is a small temple with four sanctuary towers. It was built as an island slightly north of centre in the now dry Indratataka baray, in what was previously the Angkor capital of Hariharalaya (present-day Roluos).
Lolei has some fine lintels, in the style of Preah Ko Temple, and some well-preserved inscriptions with superb calligraphy on the sanctuaries’ door-frames.
Yashovarman I erected Lolei in memory of his parents and of his mother's parents, after moving the capital from Hariharalaya to Yashodharapura (present-day Angkor Thom).
The Indratataka baray in which Lolei stood was built by Yashovarman I's father, Indravarman I. The two neighbouring temples, Preah Ko Temple and the Bakong Temple, were also built under Indravarman I in Hariharalaya.
