This was quiet a small temple, mainly gates really that you would pass under. A great spot for some lovely photos though. Watch out for all the people that run at you who have stalls they say they will wait for you to come out.

Ta Som Temple is one of the smaller temples in Angkor Complex. It's most notable feature is a large ficus tree that grows from the roof of the eastern gate. Due to its size, there are not many tourists who visit it, making exploring the grounds a peaceful and adventurous experience.

A cross between Bayon and Ta Prohm. We could see stone faces of the Bodhisattva like in Bayon and also see trees growing among the ruins like in Ta Prohm. However it is much smaller , easier to navigate than either Bayon or Ta Prohm. Another plus point is lthat it is less visited , so more privacy, more relax.

Did not find this temple interesting after the other major ones,, it is sizable, but I found this not too impressive in comparison to other temples

a great little temple , very atmospheric and peaceful , with an interesting fig tree growing through and over one of the structures. This temple is near , and can be combined in the same trip with, the beautiful 'Eastern Mebon' temple (with its lovely elephant statues).

This temple is distinguished by the almost vertical steps which you need to climb to get up the shrine. Highly recomended - not so crowded and great feeling of achievement if you visit this temple. Be prepared - these temples are truly awesome. Much has been written but you need to see them to believe them. Read a guide book... More

This is a small, flat, galleried temple surrounded by a moat and has some of the architectural features of the Bayon temple like the faces of the Bodhisattva looking out from the towers of the gopuras. Also, like the more famous Ta Prohm temple, it has only been partially restored and has trees growing out of the walls. The temple... More

It's a great little temple that is worth a visit if you have the extra time as it's part of the greater loop. Unfortunately for me I saw quite a few temples in the Angkor park and this one just doesn't really stand out for me. But as it's not one of the more famous ones it is less crowded... More

As I spent more and more time and got acquainted a bit with the Khmer ruins in Siem Reip visited this temple and was amazed again by its magnificence It's smaller and still very beautiful You can see how the jungle is actually growing and enveloping the temple Very worthwhile
