Ta Som, Siem Reap

4.5
Visit Ta Som, a small 12th century-temple in the ancient city of Angkor. Nestled in a wooded area, the temple dates back to the rule of the Khmer king Jayavarman VII. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the temple, surrounded by a shady grove, and admire its stone ruins, adorned with intricate carvings and figurines. Nature has blended with the man-made structures of this ancient site, with one of the gopuram, or entrance walls, completely overgrown by a sacred fig tree, making for a great photo opportunity.

  • To tell the truth, in addition to the great Circle of the temple, there is no temple is worth seeing, but if the area is very small, or rough carving, small circle of the route design is really a problem, should be in the size of Angkor spend more time, these dispensable temples ignore it does not matter.

  • This is a nice one. Especially the part where you reach the tree which has grown into the temple and makes a fantastic doorway. Otherwise nothing special about it.  more »
  • Small key temple: we were almost alone, mesmerizing atmosphere must go to opposite the main entrance door to the most beautiful photo

  • Quick tour but amazing tree at the end of tour. Amazing temple.
  • We were so lucky to experience it with just my friends since most of the tourists focus on the well known temples which makes it crowded. We were able enjoy the area without any photobombers. Plus the tree structure at the back looked amazing.
  • A beautiful small temple and not so popular among tourists... worth a visit
  • Highly recommended place for photo.
  • Part of the Grand Circuit; similar to Preah Khan it contains a tree working through its walls
