Thma Bay Kaek is a small, insignificant Angkor ruin related to the nearby Prasat Bei. Both were built when Phnom Bakheng was the capital of Angkor. There isn't much of Thma Bay Kaek for us to make out how it actually looked like. There would be a tower facing east with a laterite terrace in front of it.
I explored Thma Bay Kaek after visiting Prasat Bei. We are very near the causeway that leads to the south gopura of Angkor Thom.

How to reach Thma Bay KaekThma Bay Kaek is located between Baksei Chamkrong and the moat of Angkor Thom, about 125m west of the road that leads to the south gopura of Angkor Thom, and 175m from Prasat Bei. Just before the causeway with the rows of gods and demons, turn left on the side path, and you will reach Thma Bay Kaek.
