Yasovarman I (889-c.915) established Bakheng as his first State Temple of the new city of Angkor, after moving the capital from Hariharalay (Roluos). The new city was called Yasodharapura, and was centered by Bakheng Mountain. Bakheng was conceived of as a pyramid of ascending square terraces surrounded by subsidiary sanctuary towers, symbolizing Mount Meru, the center of the world according to Indic cosmology. The temple was designed to reflect the different periods of Indic astronomy adopted by the Khmers, and the plan of its buildings represented the arrangement of the universe. The temple was consecrated in 907 and briefly rehabilitated by Jayavarman V (968-c.1000) in about 968.
