My favourite on the grand circuit - the Bayon faces are amazing and I love how it hasn’t been restored and left to the jungle. Really beautiful temple.

Tiny version of Ta Prohm. Attraction is the doorway at the back with massive tree growing around it with "Bayon" face statue above it. Major photo-op.

Ta Som is a small temple, built at the end of the 12th century. Located north east of Angkor Thom and just close of Neak Pean. Part of a Grand Circuit Tour. Lesser known, enjoy trees and other vegetation growth. Largely unrestored.

If you have one day in SR, Visit Angkor Wat, and Bayon, but if you have two days in SR, check out Ta Som! It is away from the crowd but well worth a visit! The temple has its main structure preserved and is also...More

This is a nice one. Especially the part where you reach the tree which has grown into the temple and makes a fantastic doorway. Otherwise nothing special about it.

A smaller temple tucked away with gorgeous trees taking over the compound and shady rest spots . Lots of doorways beautifully carved-One of my favourites.
