Scope note
Refers to the period of the reign of King Jayavarman V (968-1001 CE). The architectural style of the period is exemplified by the state palace temple, Ta Keo, located at the center of the capital Jayendranagari, and the Banteay Srei, a decorated temple that features colonettes and lintels in the archaic style and depicts scenes from Indian mythology on the tympana. The period is generally characterized by the continuing use of sandstone and the further development of tiered, pyramidal temple constructions.
