U for unrestored

A scene from the Churning of the Sea of Milk
The second temple of five at Preah Pithu is Temple U, similar in style to Temple T but with more carvings to see. Here's a picture of the detailed carving from a lintel showing Vishnu dancing during the Churning of the Sea of Milk, whilst a line of gods pull on the giant naga Vasuki. More photos from Temple U later. Vishnu is the Protector, the god who preserves universal order and fights to restore harmony. He's one of the good guys.
