Srah Srang

Posted By : admin/ 3 0

To the west of Pre Rup lies the great reservoir of Srah Srang or Royal Bath. Built in the 7th century and measuring 1,312 ft by 2,625 ft (400 m by 800 m) it was used exclusively by King Jayavarman V and his wives. On the western side of the lake is a landing platform flanked by two sandstone lions and balustrades bearing a large garuda on the back of a three-headed serpent. The lake is best visited at sunrise, when water buffalo graze in its shallows and local children congregate for a swim.
