Comment : It is the Buddhism temple of the Bayon style which was made by Jayavarman VII in 12 centuries. The corridor was size of initial east west 35 meters and north and south 26 meters, but it was expanded afterwards by Rajendravarman II, reached size of east west 55 meters and north and south 47 meters.


The corridor was surrounded being lap the wall of the laterite, but this lap wall almost has disappeared. Lap septentrional and south side of the wall it can recognize the trace of the moat. The ruins itself being small-scale, the part which falls it is many. The stones have laid scattered, it is the atmosphere which becomes rough. The scripture house is just one inside the corridor.

Ta Keo

Constructed : Late 10th/Early 11th century - between 968 - 1001
Religion: Hindu
Style : Khleang
King : Jayavarman V ★ 968 - 1001 ★
Location : Small circuit, between Ta Phrom and Angkor Thom,
on the edge of the road.


Comment : The situation of Ta Keo, just at the edge of the road makes it possible to immediately give itself an overall idea of this temple mountain. It appears in these very geometrical lines, and completion misses it is obvious. This temple is thus an unfinished work, only the main work having been carried out. So to circumvent it by outside is very pleasant, but to make the rise of it can be disappointing.


The stoppage of the works at the stage of decoration can corresponds with the death of its creative King, Jayavarman V, its nephew and successor Udayadityavarman II or the usurper Suryavarman I which monopolized the throne from 1002 not wanting perhaps to see glory radiating on another but only themselves. Though it is, this temple is beautiful, well proportioned, but lack undoubtedly of the charm which characterizes the majority of the other temples of Angkor.


Temple Detail : Depending the dying of the king, construction was discontinued and was left. Because of that, it has remained the structural material of the sandstone accumulating exposed. The temple of that time how doing, it is the valuable ruins which can be made and known high. The rock work seeing being elaborate, the opening is prompt. The temple of mountain type (Temple Mountain) is, of the central hall freeboard there are 20 meters or more.


As for the temple, presently the duplication which is inside the ring moat which does not have the water lap being surrounded in the wall, in both lap wall is a tower gate in four directions of north east. Lap as for wall outside east west approximately 120 meters and north and south 100 meters. The base does the laterite and top with the sandstone. Lap as for wall inside east west approximately 80 meters and north and south 75 meters. The corridor of the sandstone which on the base of the high laterite was opened inside is riding. It is narrow, closes the corridor which is in early stage of development outside, the window opens only inside.

There is a central stylobate which increases in three layer lap inside the wall inside, the central hall and four secondary halls stand on that. Those where a state where construction has been discontinued has been shown well are these five halls. Impression of Ta Keo in a manner of speaking is Modern architecture of the concrete placing releasing. In the view which the structural material of the sandstone stacks skillfully and can be brought together, beauty of modelling which leads to today is felt.

Comment : With the origin, it is a baray of modest size which was transformed and arranged under Jayavarman VII to make of it a gigantic personal swimming pool of the Queen! The landing stage, kindly decorated is located just opposite Banteay Kdei, a swimming pool of 700 by 200 meters in the medium of which a vague small island on which remains what was supposed to be a small temple. Srah Srang is also one of the most beautiful places to admire the sunrise, a variation of large crowd of Angkor Wat.

Spean Thma

Constructed : 16th century
Style : Bayon
King : Unknown
Location : Small circuit, between Ta Keo and Thommanom.


Comment : Spean Thma, the bridge of stone. It would have been rebuilt several times and is hardly of interest the more so as it is possible to see many bridges in better states on the road from Siem reap in Phnom Penh. It will be noticed nevertheless that the bridge is currently to a hundred meters from the river what shows at which point the water court moved with time.
