Very little is known about Jayavarman II's son and successor, Jayavarman III (Khmer: ជ័យវរ្ម័នទី៣), or Vishnuloka, the second ruler of Angkor.:103 An inscription from Prasat Sak describes: "When he failed to capture a wild elephant while hunting, a divinity promised that he would secure the animal if he built a sanctuary." There are some temples dated to his reign though none said that they belonged to him. He may have begun a small construction project which was overshadowed by his more ambitious successor and builder, Indravarman I. He died in 877 probably from chasing a wild elephant.
