Site Size & Condition: Medium Tuol Prasat Ta Srei (ប្រាសាទតាស្រី - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ta S'rei) was a sizable temple site in its days. It used to house three brick temples open to the east and aligned on the north to south axis. To the north and south of the central temple were two elongated structures, along with two libraries to the east facing west. Surrounding the entire site was a laterite enclosure with an east entrance brick pavilion, and around this enclosure was a moat with an east entrance causeway that led onto a rectangular man-made reservoir about 350m to the east weighing in at 250m x 120m.

A fragment of a pre-Angkorean lintel, sandstone lingam pedestal, a fragment of a somasutra and a temple top lotus bud was reported by some Japanese visitors in the early 2000's, though we are unsure as to what remains in situ.
