Tep Pranam was originally a Buddhist shrine in the 9th century under Yasovarman I (889-900+). It was expanded over the years with 12th century balustrades, 13th century lions and significant post-Angkorian modifications and additions.

The terrace lies 100 metres north of the terrace of the Leper King, east of Preah Palilay temple. The large Buddha seated on a lotus pedestal on a moulded base in sandstone dates from an undefined period. The body of the Buddha has been reassembled from numerous stones.
