Exploring Ta Keo

Lovia, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia
3 Kudos
Ta Keo was different the the previous two temples my wife and I visited. Upon arrival, we noticed that the massive temple was a lot like a giant mountain. Carving work on the galleries had just begun when work on the temple stopped, thus giving it a more simple look. Ta Keo seemed very compact, but yet robust and monumental.

A very steep stairwell led the way to the five top towers that, just like Angkor Wat, represented the five peaks of Mount Meru. The entire temple was built using laterite and sandstones (like many Angkor temples), piling up to an impressive 21 meters.
