Pre Rup Temple

Pre Rup Temple in Angkor Wat, Archaeological Park, Cambodia
It is a temple mountain of combined brick, late-rite and sandstone construction.

The temple’s name is a comparatively modern one meaning "turn the body". This reflects the common belief among Cambodians that funerals were conducted at the temple, with the ashes of the body being ritually rotated in different directions as the service progressed.
