10 Library at Ta Prohm in Angkor Archaeological Park, Cambodia

A common structure among the temples at Angkor is the library. They are typically built in pairs on either side of an enclosure. Their entrance always faces west. The word “library” is probably a misnomer. Scholars doubt they housed manuscripts. However, their actual purpose is unknown. This library is at the southeast corner of the third enclosure at Ta Prohm.
