We explored banteay kedei monastery for about 1 hour began from 2.28-3.28 pm this temple also built by king jayavarman VII around end of 12 AD the same king who build Bayon  and other temples in Angkor and outside Angkor like Beng Maelea and Banteay Chmar

Same like other buiding were being built during king jayavarman VII era this temple also built from sandstone

When we see banteay kdei we will notice many similiarity between Banteay Kdei and ta prom and preah khan
