Standing inside the ruined central sanctum at Prasat Krachap. Looking at this temple made me appreciate how lucky for Banteay Srei to survive in such remarkable good condition. Prasat Krachap, which is contemporary to Banteay Srei and built of the same materials, could not survive abandonment. Damaged by nature, weather, time and man, all that remains at Prasat Krachap is a heap of rubble and ruins. We can only compare it to Banteay Srei to imagine how it would have looked in its halcyon days.
