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.

Lots of renovations around. Interesting visit, but not as impressive as other temples around. Worth a visit if you have some spare time.

The steep steps toward the top is challenging. More than the bayon itself. I might caution while climbing up the steps. I guess it's worth it to climb up to the top. The only downside is that alot of rectification work is going on while...More
