The north sanctuary tower is in the inner enclosure of the Bantaey Sei Temple situated 16 miles northeast of Siem Reap, Cambodia. It has multi-level pediments and a lintel above the door. The bottom-most scene on the pediment most likely depicts Bhima killing Jarasandha – who was the king of Magadha- by splitting his body into two. The lintel shows Indra riding his vehicle three headed elephant Airavata.
