Banteay Kdei

Banteay Kdei is another of Jayavarman VII's many works, but it was apparently constructed using inferior quality materials, leading its relatively poor state of repair today.

 

Here a guide shows some other tourists around, while an apparent Buddhist devotee waits for some gullible tourist to take an incense stick as an offering to Buddha before then demanding a hefty fee for the privilege. There seemed to be at least one of these people in every major temple.
