Site Size & Condition: Small Prasat Prasat Chrung Piek Nirtei (ប្រាសាទជ្រុងភាគនិរតី - Pronounced: Pra-saht J'rohng Peekh Nir-tei)

Is one of 4 small, cruciform Bayon-style temples placed at the corners of the Angkor Thom walls. All 4 sites are similar in design with a small enclosure wall, central shrine and tiny pavilions to the east and west, (all in sandstone). The eastern ones each house an inscription commemorating the founding of the city by Jayavarman VII.

The southwestern of the Chrung temples is perhaps the most picturesque of the 4.
