Banteay Sema Temple, he is a temple not far from the Banteay Srei. I am very grateful to a local tour guide I met in Banteay Srei. She recommended it to me. Although there is no introduction to this temple in my guide, when I came here, I fell in love with him deeply, because he has not many people and there are many things we can see. Especially the carvings inside, I sometimes think about it carefully, and I feel that some of the layouts between him and the Royal Palace have some similarities. If you have time to visit the Royal Palace, you might as well come here to take a look.
This is a small temple. And it's perfect to get there before the crowd arrives on the first morning. We saw that there were already two small tour groups before us, and we were convinced that this particular small temple had already begun to be crowded with people. The carvings below are very gorgeous, because the stone in this temple is sandstone, coupled with its smooth texture, so the artist further carves intricate details.
