Nice temple. No need to stay long here. Just enjoy the view from the top. I wouldn't recommend this place if you aren't fit or strong because the stairs are very steep and large. Best part about ta keo is that their is almost nobody there. Quiet and relaxing.

This temple I beleive where the king would visit to pray on special occasions, it had a temple in the center with long steps leading up check out the large rocks used for the doorway arches, they are massive and couldnt even imagine how they got them there.

We spent a short amount of time at this Temple - it's not a must do, but there is a bit of a fun personal challenge in conquering the steps to go to the top, and then not breaking your neck on the climb down. I don't usually include photos of people on Tripadvisor, but thought one was necessary to... More

Another temple that you might not want to spend long. You could take very good shot from outside as the layers are visible and you could climb up and take photo from the ground. Go in and climb up to the top if you wish but do spend adequate time as you have more significant ones to visit.

It is incredible to see the intricate carvings done in the 12th and 13th centuries on the temples of Ankor. This is a Buddhist's and art lover's paradise.

This did look like another nice temple although our driver suggested it was only worth stopping for a photo shoot, this was probably as we were on a timetable and it wasn't part of our itinerary but it did look like it was worth investigating inside.

This was our first encounter with a red mountain-temple (we saw Pre Rup and Eastern Mebon the next days), so there was an element of surprise and quite a bit of excitement at climbing the very steep steps. The barely decorated red sandstone “mount with the golden peaks” is stunning since the year 1000 and the view from the top... More

We visited Ta Keo in the pouring rain. Often over-looked because it is very plain and due to steep stairs, it is well worth a visit due the stunnng views from the top and the fact that it is relatively quiet.

This temple is special. I was watching people climbing those stairs before I decided to give it a go. It was worth it. 100% and the more I dwell on the past and how this was build the more impressed I am still.

While returning from Banteay Srei, I came to Ta Keo which is in eastern part of Angkor. It's from late 10th century and one among the temple-mountains to be built entirely with Sandstone. The massive appearance look like incomplete and is designed as symbol on earth of five-peaked Mount Meru, a sacred mountain from Hindu mythology. I was told that... More
