Ta Keo, Siem Reap
(4.1/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Looks majestic from down. Going up narrow steps with no handrails by the side is quite a challenge but upon reaching the top you will be enthralled by the sight. 
  • Angkor Wat is the repair aid Japan is here China has helped is like. Pretty high. Very nice photos came because it was just a beautiful blue sky. The remains appeared on the way to Ta prohm from Angkor Thom. Many of the monuments and ruins of the unbearable. Ruins can climb, but it was hard.

  • 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
