We had a lovely time here. Yes there were people asking for money but there was also an awesome temple with some amazing carvings. Also much easier to access than many temples as there are no steep steps. I will go back one day.

I found this temple a little too ruined for me there were a few preserved spots but to make it worse we were harassed by beggars and kids wanting to sell candles from entering to exiting

Ta Phrom at Tonle Bati (Bati being the name of the adjacent lake, which differentiates this site from the more illustrious temple of the same name at Angkor), is one of the best temples to be seen outside of Angkor.
