Located inside the Angkor complex, this temple was my favorite attraction during my 5 days stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The sand stones are well preserved, and the way the stairs were created was amazing. It completes me when I reached the top of the temple and was so relaxed seeing the half of the province and smelling the fresh... More

We took the steep steps to the top what a view. The buildings are interesting and we enjoyed visiting a smaller less busy site.Well worth a visit.

Ta Keo is very much similar to Pre Rup when seen from a distance. We took photographs from outside. the temple itself is seen to be very beautiful and historical. The steps are steep but certainly worth the effort.

I wouldn't go too far out of my way for this one, but if you are fit and don't mind very steep steps, its worth hiking up to the top for the breeze and the view. Go with a tour guide who can explain the significance of this temple.

Originally built as a hospital to serve the city. Demonstrated the advance social structure and administration at that time. Nothing specular when compared with other Wat. Good adventure to climb up the structure for a good view. Can be visited if its along the way to other key Wat.

Here is another lessor known temple that is clear of tour groups. Very tall temple originally built for Hindu gods but converted to a Buddhist temple after repeated lightning strikes (no surprise here. This temple is very tall). Narrow and scare stairs to climb. Take care when ascending and even more care when descending. It looks as if the stairs... More

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...
