Description

Le groupe de Koh Ker (première moitié du Xème siècle) présente plusieurs sanctuaires de grandes dimensions construits en latérite. Toutfois, il existe aussi d'autres monuments ou la brique, la latérite et le grès coexistent.

L'ordonnancement du plan du Prasat Thom de Koh Ker est remarquable par la combinaison de son plan axé et l'existence de plusieurs enceintes successives
