27. Banteay Prei Temple:

It is recalled that the Banteay Prei temple (“Citadel of the Forest”, late 12th-early 13th century) is located north of the Preah Khan complex and its Baray (Jayatataka).
As objectives of its conservation and enhancement program, ANA must integrate this monument into the Tourism Management Plan (TMP) as a specific “tourism product”.
Here again, the harmony between architecture and nature and the relative solitude of the place represent the “natural” character of the Angkor site.
On this basis and after stabilization of the monument, it is recommended not to push the restoration work very far and to preserve as much as possible the balance between the cultural environment and the vegetation cover.
