Ishanapura was the capital of the Chenla Empire that flourished in the late 6th and early 7th centuries AD. The remains include a walled city center and numerous temples, ten of which are octagonal, unique specimens of their genre in southeast Asia. Decorated sandstone elements in the site are characteristic of the pre-Angkor decorative idiom, known as the Sambor Prei Kuk Style.
