Banteay Srei (plan)
This is the eastern gopura of the temple's second enclosure (previous page), as seen from the outside (east) in the morning sunlight. Banteay Srei was restored in the 1930s, using the technique of anastylosis. This involved analysis and rebuilding of the temple using as much of the original material as possible. New material was used only where structurally necessary, as on the columns seen here.
