Baksei Chamkrong
Baksei Chamkrong is a small Hindu temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva and used to hold a golden image of him. The temple can be seen on the left side when your entering Angkor Thom from the southern gate. It was dedicated to Yasovarman by his son, King Harsavarman. The temple was completed by Rajendravarman II (944-968 AD).
The name Baksei Chamkrong means "The Bird Who Shelters Under Its Wings" and comes from a legend. In it the king try to flee an Angkor under siege and then a huge bird landed and sheltered him under its wings.
This temple is one of the first temples constructed of durable material such as bricks and laterite and with decoration in sandstone. Much of the stucco on the surface of the temple has vanished. The main sandstone lintel is decorated with a fine carving of Indra standing on his three-headed elephant Airavata. Garlands emanate from either side of Indra in the style current to the monument. There is an inscription on either side of the small doorway.
