Site Size & Condition: Medium Prasat Prasat Tonle Snguot (បា្រសាទទន្លេស្ងួត - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ton-leh S'nguot)

Also known as the Chapel of the Hospital North, is one of the 4 such Chapels, constructed by Jayavarman VII, on each side of Angkor Thom. This site lies some 5-600m, and slightly to the west, of the road leading north from the north gate of the city.

The site is in much poorer condition than the Chapel of the Hospital at Ta Keo or Prasat Ta Prohm Kel to the south and consists of a partially-ruined single sandstone tower. Some devatas, 'tapestry' decoration and an eastern lintel can still be seen.
