The buildings that make up this sanctuary dedicated to Shiva, located on the edge of a plateau that dominates the plain of Cambodia, were built in the first half of the 11th century AD and form the most important sanctuary built during the reign of King Sûryavarman I (1002–50), who seized power at Angkor around 1006.
