hospitals were built throughout the empire under Jayavarman VII. The
hospital itself was probably constructed of perishable materials such as
wood and bamboo, which has long since disappeared, leaving only the
sandstone hospital temple or ‘chapel’ for the ages. This temple and the
one at Ta Prohm Kel opposite Angkor Wat offer two examples within the
Park area. Constructed of sandstone, this Chapel of the Hospital is in
rough condition but some carvings are still visible. A quiet, meditative
spot, easily accessible but visited by few tourists.
