Chau Say Tevoda is a small temple of similar design and floor plan to Thom-manon located across the street (except for additional gopuras and library). For years it looked like Thommanonís neglected sister, languishing in significantly worse condition. In recent years Chau Say Tevoda has undergone an extensive restoration project, which is now largely complete.

Chau Say Tevoda seems to stand in partnership with Thommanon, but in fact was built much later in Suryavarman IIís rule. Chau Say Tevoda displays some well-executed carvings that are in still fair condition, especially those on the eastern gopura. Though most carvings are Hindu-themed, there are also some Buddhist-themed reliefs. The eastern walkway from the temple leads to the Siem Reap River a few hundred meters away.
