Site Size & Condition: Medium Ruin Prasat Preah Damrei (ប្រាសាទព្រះដំរី - Pronounced: Preah Dom-rei)

This small laterite step pyramid temple is named after the four sandstone elephant statues that adorn the four corners of the pyramid, however today only 2 of the original 4 remain. The other two statues are now on display at the National Museum of Cambodia in Phnom Penh and at the Guimet Museum in Paris.

The temple was constructed in the 10th Century under King Suryavarman I and later added to by King Jayavarman VII as evident in the carvings found on the sandstone entrance pavilion and naga balustrade.
