constructed during the reign of Jayavarman VII (1181-1220)

During his illustrious reign, King Jayavarman VII commissioned the construction of numerous hospitals, libraries, temples, rest houses, and reservoirs. He built bridges and paved roads within his empire that extended from Bangkok in present-day Thailand to Prey Nokor (Saigon) in present-day Vietnam. The Praptos bridge below was one such bridge that helped connect King Jayavarman's vast empire.
