A classical temple mountain with 5 terraces, Ta Keo shows beautiful proportions. But the lack of decorative elements leaves us with the impression of an unfinished monument. Unfortunately the restauration works by Chinese destroyed the authenticity of the building because they used visible steel joists...More

Probably my least favourite temple simply because there is very little to see - the temple was never completed and as such there is no decoration or reliefs. The pyramid is cool, from the bottom! The stairs are horrendously steep (avoid in wet weather) climbing...More

Ta Keo is the first temple built entirely in sandstone and as such serves as a milestone in Khmer history. The temple remains unfinished, yet the actual reason for its no completion is unknown. The steps leading to the upper most tier is pretty steep...More
