PREAH PITHU

constructed during the reign of Suryavarman II (1113-1150)

Preah Pithu consists of five separate shrines and is often referred to as the Preah Pithu Group. According to Marilia Albanese, "the details of the decoration demonstrate great sophistication and surprise visitors who are willing to depart from the usual Angkor itineraries."
