About Prasat Kravan
Prasat Kravan is a small but significant temple located in the Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia. It is believed to have been built in the early 10th century, during the reign of the Khmer King Harshavarman I, and is known for its well-preserved brick sculptures and bas-reliefs.
The temple is made up of five brick towers, each of which contains a series of carvings and sculptures that depict scenes from Hindu mythology and daily life in ancient Cambodia. The carvings are considered to be some of the finest examples of Khmer art and architecture from this period, and are known for their intricate details and delicate workmanship.
Despite its small size, Prasat Kravan is considered to be an important site for scholars and researchers who are studying the Khmer Empire and its architectural legacy. The temple is also popular among tourists who are interested in exploring the rich cultural heritage of Cambodia and learning more about the history of the region.
Today, Prasat Kravan is well-preserved and open to visitors, and is considered to be one of the must-see attractions in the Angkor Wat temple complex. With its well-preserved sculptures and carvings, it offers a unique glimpse into the artistic and architectural achievements of the Khmer Empire.
