I really liked this smaller temple, it was built by the King in the 12th or 13th century to honour his father, Dharanindravarman II and has elements of some of my favourite temples but on a smaller scale. It has the faces that may be found at Baton and overgrown trees strangling and supporting otherwise collapsed gates (especially the photogenic... More

This is a sweet tiny temple compared with the huge Angkor Wat and it isn't so interesting as Ta Prohm due to the movie, however, I find Ta Som is a very pleasant temple.

Nothing special about this temple, However, it was a quiet temple so you can hang around with no hassle.

A small but deep temple beside Neak Pean. Surprise at the end of the temple, please found out by yourself. Less tour group to big circle, take you time to explore the temple with quite and peace surrounding.

Away from the madness of the other more popular crowded temples. We were practically the only travellers in the temple when visited right after watching the sunset at Angkor Wat. The serenity brings you back in time.

Be prepared for a long walk. Bring plenty of water. The temple ground is filled with tourist and can be crowded. Interesting and spend at least one hour or two.

It has got a bit of both Ta Phrom and Bayon (faces at the entrance). If you are visitng Ta Phrom and Bayon, you can skip this. If you have time at your hand, do visit.
