Prasat Sikhoraphum

Southwest corner
Angkor Wat style
Suryavarman II, 1113-1150

Although it is located in Thailand, Sikoraphum is uniquely "Cambodian" in plan and decoration, except of course for the shape of its towers. The temple plan is arranged in quincunx, which is common in Cambodia but not found in Thailand except for this temple. Since the quincunx plan in Cambodia usually applies to state temples, its effect in this small temple is odd, almost like a miniature.

The unusual, layer-cake shape of the towers is due to rebuilding by Laotians in the 15th-16th centuries.
