Devata are smaller and more focused deities in Indian religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism. They can be either male or female. Every human activity has its devata, its spiritual counterpart or aspect. Bhagwan, Ishwar and Paramatma are the names for the supreme being which controls everyone. Devatas are demigods which are somewhat at lower post controlling different departments such as weather, earth, etc.
Jayavarman VII followed the example of King Suryavarman II by filling his monument with female energy. The portraits of sacred women, now called devata or apsaras depending on their style, surround the Bayon. No one knows exactly what the ancient Khmers called these women who are represented so prominently in their temples.
