The Pre Rup is a temple mountain in Angkor Wat complex, where was built in second half of the 10th century (961)by the King Rajendraman II dedicated to the god Siva (Hindi), replica to Pre Rup style of art. Same as the other temples in Angkor Wat, the Pre Rup is composed by laterite and brick, and is located at northeast of Srah Srang.
In fact, the name of this temple was endowed with a relatively modern one meaning “turn the body”, what reflects a general belief among Cambodians that the temple used as the cremations for royal people were conducted here, and with the body turning into ashes, the spirit can go to the Heaven.
