This is another one of the many smaller temples in the park that would be an attraction in their own right anywhere else. For anyone planning a visit this is on the 'grand circuit'

Enjoyed my visit to Ta Som. It was a nice little temple that had a doorway with a large tree growing through it. Offered a less crowded alternative to Tha Prohm for those looking for a 'jungle temple'.

After all the big temples you don't expect a big surprise when you enter this site. But: Wow, nice place and - always important when you visit the temples of Angkor - less people. Yeah!

Ta Som is like Ta Prohm only smaller and with fewer people, making it a truly beautiful temple to visit.

This temple is small. The reason why it becomes famous is because of its gate - embraced by a big tree.

I'm rating this as average simply because I'm comparing it to the amazing ones like Ta Phrom, Beng Meala, Koh Ker and of course Angkor Watt. It is alright as far as temples go, with some overgrown courtyards and stepping stones. Most of the carvings...More

This is one of the smaller temples in Angkor, but still very much worth visiting. You can walk through and around these ruins, although it won't take to long to have seen it, it is beautiful to see how this place is crumbling down as...More
