Prasat Ta Nei is a late twelfth Century stone sanctuary situated in Angkor, Cambodia. Worked during the rule of King Jayavarman VII, it is situated close to the northwest corner of the East Baray, a huge blessed repository. It was devoted to the Buddha.
Little (55m x 47m), semi-destroyed, untouristed wilderness sanctuary suggestive of Ta Som, and showing exemplary Jayavarman VII masterfulness. A portion of the apsara and lintel carvings are in very acceptable condition. Fit as a fiddle than the majority of the sanctuaries on the primary visit circuit. The essential street to Ta Nei from where it meets the Grand Circuit street close to the southeast corner of Ta Keo was shut on the last review. To get to Ta Nei, park toward the stopping point close to Ta Keo and walk the back road about 1km to Ta Nei, or by bike, follow the plain back road from right external the Victory Gate of Angkor Thom to the ‘French Dam.’ Cross the dam and continue 200m up a little way.
History of Tanei Temple
One of the more modest Angkor Temples, Ta Nei was worked under King Jayavarman VII in the late twelfth century. A few researchers accept that the sanctuary was built as a medical clinic. It is currently in a genuinely destroyed state and drew closer just by means of a track through the woodland.
