    • Pre Rup was the state temple of King Rajendravarman (944-968), and is situated on the south bank of the East Baray. The temple was built at the center of a city, but nothing remains of the boundaries and dwellings. Pre Rup’s design follows the conception of the five-tiered temple-mountain, and it is likely that Rajendravarman’s architect, Kavindrari-mathana, played a role in the temple’s construction. "Pre Rup" is literally translated as "transformation of the body," a ritual practiced in burial ceremoni
