Ta Som is small and uncrowded. It also has a tower gate with 4 faces and a gopura gate enveloped by a silk-cotton tree. Lots of shade here too.

One of the more minor temples in the Angkor area, it was built by the same Buddhist king as Bayon (Jayavarman VII), and it has the same giant faces on the entry gates, as on the towers at Bayon

This is another one of the many smaller temples in the park that would be an attraction in their own right anywhere else. For anyone planning a visit this is on the 'grand circuit'

Enjoyed my visit to Ta Som. It was a nice little temple that had a doorway with a large tree growing through it. Offered a less crowded alternative to Tha Prohm for those looking for a 'jungle temple'.

After all the big temples you don't expect a big surprise when you enter this site. But: Wow, nice place and - always important when you visit the temples of Angkor - less people. Yeah!

Ta Som is like Ta Prohm only smaller and with fewer people, making it a truly beautiful temple to visit.

We enjoyed this small temple complex especially the backside of the gate which is almost completely coverd by the roots of a tree. Very special.

This temple is generally overlooked by the tourists; hence this place has less visitors round the day. Though this temple has several unique carvings; it was not too exciting for us after having visited Bayon and Ta Phrom. Yet, this temple is worth the visit....More

This temple is small. The reason why it becomes famous is because of its gate - embraced by a big tree.
