Site Size & Condition: Small Prasat Prasat Yeay Poan S7 (ប្រាសាទ​យាយ​ព័ន្ធ - Pronounced: Pra-saht Yeay Poin)

An octagonal brick tower just southwest of the central tower Prasat Yeay Poan S1 on a raised terrace/platform. The tower opens to the east, and is missing the sandstone door frame, lintel and colonettes.

The brick tower, features the distinctive 'flying palace' reliefs and were originally coated in stucco.

The central and hexagonal towers are thought to date from the reign of Isanavarman I and the remaining shrines Bhavavarman II while the complex probably represents the state temple of both rulers.

The round brick wall carvings are unique to Yeay Poan, the octagonal towers and the 'flying palace' reliefs unique to the Sambor Prei Kuk art style.
