Ta keo is certainly not the most famous temple on the small circuit, but is still very interesting due to its monumental aspect. Climbing to the upper terrace may reveal difficult for some people, especially if the burning sun of Cambodia is shining. Bring some...More

This temple is included in the small circle tour of Angkor. You can climb the temple. Great views from up there. The stairs are steep, though, so be careful. It’s also very hot if you visit around noon. It takes some of the pleasure away.

This one is a driveby at the moment. You can see people inside, but it's only staff of the restoration crew. A steep staircased temple that would be worth exploring once they re-open it.

It has five sanctuary towers arranged in a quincunx, built on the uppermost level of five-tier pyramid consisting of overlapping terraces, a step pyramid, surrounded by moat, as a symbolic depiction of Mount Meru. Its particularly massive appearance is due to the absence of external...More

This temple was left unfinished and it's much less crowded than the other places. Steep stairs take us to the top where the view is great overlooking the surrounding forests. There's some restoration work going on. I liked this temple quite a lot due to...More

According to our guide, Ta Keo was abandoned because its benefactor did not like the way the light came through...didn't spend much time here, a quick stop over before Ta Prohm.

One of the tallest monuments of Angkor. The pyramid shaped Ta Keo was build to represent Mount Meru but left unfinished. It was believe that it wa struck by lightning which was taken as a sign of bad luck.

Ta Keo is like the other temples around in Siem Reap so there's really nothing special. The stairs to climb is steep so be careful when you get up.

The temple is worth it if you are fit and unafraid of heights. It feels great to climb to the top and see how small the people look at the bottom. There is also a route along the forest that you can follow, but if...More
