Banteay Kdei is a mysterious temple. There is no record of why it was built—or by whom—because no marker stone with that information has ever been found. Its name means "The citadel of the monks' cells", but that does not necessarily indicate its function. What is known is that Banteay Kdei grew by amalgamation from a small site to a large central temple with its own enclosure wall that protected a large city.

  • Banteay Kdei Temple  (mid 12th-early 13th centuries)   
  • Banteay Kdei Temple  (mid 12th-early 13th centuries)  Banteay Kdei is a mysterious temple.  There is no record of why it was built—or by whom—because no marker stone with that information has ever been found.  Its name means "The citadel of the monks' cells", but that does not necessarily indicate its function.  What is known is that Banteay Kdei grew by amalgamation from a small site to a large central temple with its own enclosure wall that protected a large city. Asian Historical Architecture a Photographic Survey   
  • Banteay Kdei is an ancient Angkor ruin located on the western shore of the man-made reservoir, Srah Srang . Its name means "citadel of the cells". It was built as a Buddhist monastic complex by Jayavarman VII, the prolific ruler who constructed much of Angkor's temples. By the time Banteay Kdei was built, much of the good quality stones have been exhausted. Hence it was built mostly using low quality sandstone. Due to the poor quality of the material used, much of Banteay Kdei is today crumbling. And to make matters worse, the craftsmanship was also poor. I have to say that Jayavarman VII was big on quantity but not on quality.
  • Banteay Kdei is similar in style to Ta Prohm just a stone's throw away down the road. It is slightly smaller, less ornate (at least, judging from what remains to be seen) and less overtaken by nature. (Here, I have to mention that Ta Prohm appears overtaken by nature because the restorers deliberately kept it that way.) Typically visitors begin their tour of Banteay Kdei at the East Gopura near Srah Srang, and walk from east to west, across the compound, through the ruins, and out again, through to the gopura on the other side. That was how I did as well, on my visits to Banteay Kdei.
  • Built in the middle of the 12th Century to beginning 13th Century by King Jayavarman VII (reigned 1181-1220)

  • The Ceiba is a rapidly growing deciduous tree that reaches heights of 80 feet or more, and a diameter of five to eight feet above its buttresses. Scientific Name: Ceiba Pentandra Plant Family: Bombacaceae Other Names: kapoc, cotton tree The Ceiba tree was considered as the Maya Sacred Tree of Life.
  • Ceiba is the name of a genus of many species of large trees found in tropical areas, including Mexico , Central and South America , The Bahamas , Belize and the Caribbean , West Africa , and Southeast Asia . Some species can grow to 70 m (230 ft) tall or more, with a straight, largely branchless trunk that culminates in a huge, spreading canopy, and buttress roots that can be taller than a grown person. The best-known, and most widely cultivated, species is Kapok , Ceiba pentandra . Recent botanical opinion incorporates Chorisia within Ceiba , raising the number of species from 10 to 20 or more, and puts the genus as a whole within the family Malvaceae . Ceiba species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera ( butterfly and moth ) species including the leaf-miner Bucculatrix ceibae which feeds exclusively on the genus.
