Site Size & Condition: Small Prasat Prasat Phnom Banan Toch (​ប្រាសាទភ្នំបាណន់តូច - Pronounced: Pra-saht P'nom Ba-non Toch)

The remains of a small laterite shrine, that looks a little reminiscent of a library or a mini dharmasala. The little laterite structure sits at the base of the hill on the east of newly restored laterite staircase Chandar Borann Prasat Phnom Banan that leads up to the main temple site of Prasat Phnom Banan. It is highly likely that this structure was built or added during King Jayavarman VII's reign.
