Banteay Kdei is dating back to the late 12th century, beginning of the 13th century under the reign of Jayavarman VII, is opposite the Sras Srang reservoir. Though not as popular as Ta Phrom or Preah Khan (Monuments of a similar period and style), it nevertheless provides an ideal setting to linger. But Banteay Kdei is very known by the discovery, in 2001, of a cache in which broken statues of Buddha and other Buddhist artifacts (274 pieces) had been buried. They are now in display of the Preah Norodom Sihanouk Angkor Museum.
