Prasat Kansaeng (ប្រាសាទកន្សែង - Pronounced: Pra-saht Kanh-saeng) is situated within the moated area of Prasat Beng Mealea, just to the south of the western entrance, some 100m east of the causeway. The rectangular, sandstone construction is typical of a Jayavarman VII period dharmasala or 'rest-house' and so is assumed to have been added at a later date than the main temple site.
The building is largely intact, although on our last visit in 2018, was overgrown with vegetation and the interior was inaccessible due to termite mounds. However, lintel, pediment and devata carvings are all badly eroded.
The site is atmospheric and rarely visited due to its location so certainly worth including in any exploration of Beng Melea.
