As many others have said this temple is well off the beaten track,and the track it is on is quite poor so only small vehicles can get to it,this keeps most of the big tours away making it very quiet and peacefull,very little restoration has been done here so if you like quiet unrestored temples this one is ideal.It is set deep in the middle of the jungle and you can allways hear the gibbonns nearby,and just a slim chance of seeing them,when I was there this Aprin there were lots of mosquitoes so best be prepared.Agreat hidden gem.

It's a really quite temple in the jungle! The best Tuk-Tuk driver for that is Thearo! To contact him, write a WhatsApp to: +855 16 665 675

As others have said it’s a small temple with little restoration done. Biggest plus is it’s secluded, off the beaten track with few tourists (only two others when I visited) and a remote chance of spotting some gibbons (I didn’t) It’s one of those attractions that if you’re in the area go and see but I wouldn’t make the trek from Siem Reap only to see this.

My tuk-tuk driver told me it's the first time he's ever been here too. It's like a mini Ta Prohm, with far fewer selfie-taking tourists... and more banana-chomping gibbons.

Gibbons not guaranteed, of course. But if the gibbons do decide to grace you with their presence anywhere in the Angkor area, this would be it, because you have to go down a dirt path through the jungle to get here; they live here, and it's more secluded than other sites.

I got lucky. The temple was nice enough, but I wound up spending much more time watching gibbons in the wild than exploring the ruins here. Well... sort of wild. They were swinging effortlessly from the trees, and at times they came down when some of the locals hand-fed them bananas. A couple tourists even decided to play catch with the gibbons, throwing a banana to a gibbon hanging from a tree to see if he'd catch it. The gibbon had good reflexes. Caught it with one hand while holding on to the tree with the other.

Now everyone who reads this review will go there, and be disappointed if the gibbons don't show up!

It is one of hidden gem temple in Angkor area, it has not so many people know this temple and it is good place to visit for original ruin of Angkor.

Although not far from the super crowded Ta Prohm, access to Ta Nei is down a dirt track and it is bypassed by most tourists. This temple is unrestored and sits in the middle of the jungle. You can hear the birds and insects and it has a raw, undiscovered feel to it. There were two elderly people leaving as we arrived so we had the site all to ourselves. The state of decay with the trees growing through it is amazing and you can imagine how some of the other bigger and more famous temples must have looked when they were first discovered. It is a very photogenic site. I loved Ta Nei, it’s one of my favourite temples and I’m so glad we took the detour off the main road to see it.

Not far from Ta Keo, is a Buddhist Temple built a bit later than Angkor Wat and some of the other temples. Possibly late 12th century. It is near the reservoir and has partially built walls. Some foliage and jungle life throughout the structure.

So glad our guide included this quite, secluded, unrestored temple to give us insight into the destruction of the civilization and better understanding of what it took tto restore other larger temples. Also enjoyed the drive through the trees to get there and that we were almost the only ones there.

Ta Nai is standing in the jungle of Angkor Park, and peace for visit with no big group of big bus. The trees grow a lot in this temple, make this temple a really natural one.

Our Tuk tuk took us to this lovely quiet spot.No tourists around which was wonderful.While our breakfast was being prepared we wondered around.A much smaller temple but you feel more at peace here.We were fortunate to see a family of gibbons very high up in the tree tops.When they are free to roam we were told they don't make all the loud sounds we are used to hearing in zoos.A beautiful group
