It was quite a scary climb up this temple. The steps are very steep, you have to basically climb with hands as well. But once we reached the top, it was a very good feeling. Not so much of a good view, but it was the climbing that made this temple special. Do visit if you have the time.

Steps are steep and can be dangerous. Proceed with caution. Theres not the best carvings of the temple set but all the same worth a short visit.

Ta Keo is a large temple complex and was still under renovations when we visited. Nice structured temple with some interesting architecture. Not amazing like Angkor Thom or Wat or Preah Khan but if your in the area judge for yourself. Remember My advice is please get a Tour guide or organise a tour as it is essential to understand...

Watch your step! What this temple lacks in artistry, it makes up for in thrill value. Going up those steep steps makes you feel like you could fall off any second. Where else in the age of health and safety could you say that?

From the looks of it, Ta Keo temple might have been a great temple to look at but sad to say it was under restoration. Hope soon it will be open for tourists.

Visit if you have time. A well preserved five tiered state temple which was left unfinished so it does not have the wall carvings of the main Angkor temples. Still worth visiting for its scale and construction. Lots of steps but good views over the site once you get to the top. Worth a walk to nearby Ta Nei (a... More

It's a fairly large temple that offer greats views of the jungle. When I went you could climb to the top but many parts on the sides of the temple were off limits.

I visited this temple late on my second day. It was still under recontruction. There was a crane, blocked steps, blocks on the ground. You could see the blocks that made up these temples. But, I didn't see a lot of carvings. There were only a few other people -- actually too few people and it creeped me out a... More
