North and South Kliang Temple
The north and west kliang are located behind Sour Proat temple and facing the Terrace of the Elephant and the Leper King. These sandstone temples were built in the late 10th and early 11th centuries by King Jayavarman V and King Suryavarman I.
The temple consists of a pair of large sandstone façade that look quite grand against a jungle background. They are similar in time, layout, style and decoration, although inscription suggests that the South Kliang was built slightly later than the north one. Some scholars believe the name storehouse is inappropriate for these temples and suggest they may have been reception halls for receiving foreign dignitaries.
The workmanship of the architecture and decoration of North Kliang is more carefully executed than that of the South Kliang. To the rear of the North Kliang there is a laterite wall with high level horizontal windows which encloses smaller halls in the courtyard. The long rectangular structure of South Kliang, however, is unfinished, but it stands on a molded platform. The interior decoration is limited to a frieze under the cornice.
