Ta Som

Compact and scenic

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Ta Som is a compact temple — laterite enclosure wall, reasonably well preserved gopuras and central shrine — all recently renovated. Of particular note is the much photographed eastern gopura covered in tree roots.

This is the third Jayavarman VII temple in a row along the north side of the Grand Circuit road, but this one's a bit larger, a bit more popular and does possess postcards, cold drinks and bamboo flutes as opposed to the previous two, which are void of any vendors. All very scenic and definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.
