Site Size & Condition: Other Structures Prasat Ta Prohm Khloung Thvear Khang Tboung (ប្រាសាទតាព្រហ្មក្លោងទ្វារខាងត្បូង - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ta Prom K'lowng T'vier Karng T'bouhng)

The south entrance to one of Jayavarman VII's, and indeed Angkor's, largest and most complicated sitesPrasat Ta Prohm (Siem Reap).

This particular entrance currently lay in ruins, and the four faced tower no longer remains standing.

Much of the Buddhist-related decoration was defaced during the late 13th-century and many Buddhist sandstone carvings that sat atop of the laterite walls are now missing, damaged, or eroded.
