Citadel of Women

The Female Form

The Female Form

One of the stylizations for which Banteay Srey (Citadel of Women) is famous is the female form. There are many of these image types carved throughout the inner sanctum of the temple. I was able to see them up close during my ‘VIP’ tour of the temple. It is speculated that many of the carvings throughout the temple were done by women.
