Pre Rup (; Khmer: ប្រែរូប, Prê Rub [prae.ruːp]) is a Hindu temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman: 116 : 73–74 : 361–364 and dedicated in 961 or early 962. It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction.
The temple's name is a comparatively modern one meaning "turn the body". This reflects the common belief among Cambodians that funerals were conducted at the temple, with the ashes of the body being ritually rotated in different directions as the service progressed.
