The temple architecture is quite different from any other Hindu or Buddha temple in the archeological complex. It was said that the construction of this temple were halted due to lightning strike during one of the king reign. The steps to the temple top also so steep that most of the visitors would have slow pace to climb it. This... More

This rather high temple follows the tradition of Pre-Rup & Bakheng & stands out for being the first of a great undertaking built entirely of sandstone by King Jayavarman v as his state Temple & later by king Jayaviraman but left incomplete with temple carving just begun.It was designed to represent on earth the five peaked Mt.Meru. All the ascents... More

This is a temple-mountain which is aptly named. Basically it is a big, tall temple with huge steps. We took one look at those steep steps and decided it wasn't for us.

We stopped at Ta Keo in between Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom. It was a very steep climb to the top, but it was nice to not have to walk among thousands of tourists like you do at the other temples. At first glance it resembled a mexican pyramid more than a Khmer temple. Very nice place to visit.

Quite the steep (but relatively safe) climb to the top of the Temple. Great view from the top of the woods and the road below, but no longer of Angkor Wat. Our guide mentioned that a few years ago, the top of Angkor Wat was visible from the top of Ta Keo, but because the trees have grown as much... More

A little bit off the standard temple tour of Angkor Wat. If you are there by midday just take water with you! The steps are really steep and you have to climb quite a bit up and up. But on top you have quite a good look over the trees and the area. The buddah in the top is still... More

Ta Keo had to be the state temple of Jayavarman V, son of Rajendravarman, who had built Pre Rup. Like Pre Rup, 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... More
