Pre Rup Temple

Pre Rup is a Hindu temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962.
It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction.
The temple's name is a omparatively modern one meaning "turn the body". c 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.
