Ta Keo


Ta Keo means “Crystal Elder”. Ta Keo is a temple located in Cambodia, near the famous Bayon Temple of Angkor Thom. The temple is believed to have been built in the late 12th century, during the reign of King Jayavarman VII, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Angkor Wat-style architecture.

Ta Keo is a small temple, with a central tower surrounded by several smaller structures and galleries. The temple is made of sandstone. And its walls are decorated with intricate carvings and sculptures. Many of them depict scenes from Hindu mythology. The central tower is particularly noteworthy, as it features four levels of intricate reliefs that depict scenes from Hindu mythology. It includes the churning of the ocean of milk and the battle of Kurukshetra.

Despite its age and historical significance, Ta Keo remains relatively unknown to most tourists visiting Cambodia. However, for those interested in the country’s rich cultural heritage and history, it is a must-see site. Today, the temple is a popular destination for tourists and is considered one of the most important sites in Cambodia. The temple is located near the larger temple complex of Angkor Wat, and is often visited in conjunction with other temples in the area.
