This temple is a working temple at the top. It is similar to a Mayan temple and it is a real effort to reach the top. I am a stout person and it took me about 15 minutes to reach the top. I am also a bit afraid of heights. But I am so glad I went to the top.... More

By far the best temple of the bunch. Definitely requires some climbing and is not the most secure but honestly it's away from the crowds and offers a great view.

We arrived early to visit Ta Keo and found ourselves almost alone in this imposing temple. Access would be very difficult for some people as there are loads of steep stairs to access higher levels. Any later in the day and you would have almost no shelter from the sun. We loved it - the isolation, the challenge, the sheer... More

The guides talk about how these temples are meant to mimic mountains and without the carvings or viewpoints of other temples, this one really helps drive that feeling home. Take the time to climb to the top to really appreciate the size of this temple.

Looks majestic from down. Going up narrow steps with no handrails by the side is quite a challenge but upon reaching the top you will be enthralled by the sight.

This is a less visited temple due to its stairs and nothing too unique in this temple. This temple is once known as the unlucky temple based on the history. We still climbed up to the top to enjoy the view. Nothing too special but still worth a visit

From Angkor Wat, drove about 30 minutes before arriving at Ta Keo Temple. There is a ticket check point before entering the temple. Ta Keo was the very first sandstone temple built in the 10th century. Much earlier than Angkor Wat but the works did not complete. There was really nothing much to see. 10 minutes is more than sufficient... More

Due to circumstances, this temple "had not been finished" yet. But still you can enjoy the temple itself.
