One of the tallest monuments of Angkor. The pyramid shaped Ta Keo was build to represent Mount Meru but left unfinished. It was believe that it wa struck by lightning which was taken as a sign of bad luck.

Ta Keo is like the other temples around in Siem Reap so there's really nothing special. The stairs to climb is steep so be careful when you get up.
The temple is worth it if you are fit and unafraid of heights. It feels great to climb to the top and see how small the people look at the bottom. There is also a route along the forest that you can follow, but if...More
Impressive structure that looks great from outside, under reconstruction during visit so unable to go to top and very little to see due to it being a work in progress of sorts. Personally the reconstruction takes away from it at this point as seems to...More
From the outside, it looks very pretty, even though it is not as fascinating as Bayon. Unfortunately, during my visit, it was closed so I could only see it from the outside.
If you have time, this temple is good option, with nice view at top. If you went to Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom y Ta Prohm,,, is not same. Really all is the one of the best places around the world ( history ), but other...More

The story about the temple being unfinished is cool, but the structure is just that-- unfinished. You'll get better use of your time visiting the other finished temples that have more historical value and visual interest.
The design of Ta Keo is the typical design of temple you can find around in Siem Reap so there's really nothing special. The stairs to climb is steep so be careful or just enjoy from down.
