Site Size & Condition: Other Structures Preah Ang Kok Thlok (ព្រះវិហារព្រះអង្គគោកធ្លក - Pronounced: Prayer Ong Kok T'lok) consists of a small, seated Buddha image placed atop an older laterite terrace (approximately 24 x 10m) immediately to the west of Prasat Bayon. A pile of laterite blocks, containing several carved sandstone fragments, forms a small pyramid-shaped pile just to the west of the terrace while Theravada Buddhist sema stones surround the terrace.

The date and purpose of the original terrace are hard to determine as are the original form and date of the curious laterite pyramid. An upgrade to a Theravada Buddhist site is presumably 13th-14th century at the earliest and the Buddha image is of recent fabrication.
