Site Size & Condition: Small Prasat Prasat Chedei (ប្រាសាទចេតិយ៍ - Pronounced: Pra-saht Jeh-dei)

An ancient Prasat tower that has been completely stuccoed over still stands within a modern temple compound. The original carved lintel in immaculate condition along with the two standing adjacent colonettes still sit in situ at the entrance to the tower.

A number of other artefacts can be found scattered in the area including an earlier round carved colonette, sandstone lingam pedestals, a linga and fragments of additional pedestals and lion.

To the east of the site lays a large man-made reservoir Baray Prasat Chedei that has all but dried up.
