Ta Keo, Siem Reap

(4.1/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Known as “the mountain of golden peaks,” Ta Keo stands out as one of the largest temples in the Angkor city, and evokes admiration for its five-level pyramid construction with overlapping terraces. Climb the long, steep stairs to see the five huge towers offering vistas over the ancient complex and forest. Although lacking ornate carvings, the 11th-century sandstone Khleang-style temple compensates with its grand, robust design. Explore the rooms scattered around the terraces, and wind your way through the wide hallways. Highlights include the open gallery on the second terrace, as well as galleries found at the base, with unusual inward-facing windows. Use our Siem Reap vacation route planner to add Ta Keo and other attractions to your Siem Reap vacation plans.

  • It's definitely a must see in the vast archaeological site of Angkor Wat; among other results, in different places, especially ruined by the weather (it is about a thousand years) and with a few areas where work is in progress.

  • More was on the way to Ta prohm from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Relatively large remains in force. Stairs are very steep, so climb up it.

  • Temple with three most stairs anong Cambodia small circuit. It's s good climb so be careful
  • Takeo Temple, but don't be confused as its name may refer to, this temple is located in Siem Reap Angkor compound, and not in Takeo province.
  • I was told this is the most beloved place for Japanese tourists because the name is like a Japanese male name.
  • Worth a stop during your tour through the area!
  • Nice temple and view from the highest place
