Baset Temple is picturesquely situated on top of a hill in Baset village which was built during the rule of King Suryavarman II. The town of Battambang is located at a distance of 15 kilometers from this temple. The Baset Temple earnestly reflects an adaptation of the 11th century architectural practices in Cambodia. Said to have been built between 1036 and 1042, this temple is adjacent to a pond which is 65 feet long, 39 feet wide and 33 feet deep. The Baset Temple pond remains filled with water throughout the year and do not dry up even in the summer season. However, remarkably the water level also remains normal during the rainy season.
