    A Laterite Path, measuring 160 m long and 7 m wide, is long passageway leading to the temple complex. Along both sides, there are 70 sandstone posts with lotus-bud finals calls, "Sao Tian" (Sao=Post, Tien=Candle). Similar paths and posts are seen at Preah Vihear, Banteay Sri and Preah Khan monuments in Cambosia. Sandstone posts at Prasat Preah Khan are called, "Sao Nang Charan".
