This small temple is serene and not too spacious, less crowded and shady trees around the temple. Walking through the west gate passing the main temple further east to the east gate is highlighted with tall towering tree embraving the gate. It's relaxed at walking...More

Was our third temple on the grand tour circuit. This was a pretty small temple and after a 3 day pass they start looking similar. This was okay but nothing amazing. Walked to the end for the tree pic & then back again.

Ta Som is small and uncrowded. It also has a tower gate with 4 faces and a gopura gate enveloped by a silk-cotton tree. Lots of shade here too.

One of the more minor temples in the Angkor area, it was built by the same Buddhist king as Bayon (Jayavarman VII), and it has the same giant faces on the entry gates, as on the towers at Bayon

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!
