Overgrown wonder Mar 24, 2010
Ta Som was built in the latter half of the twelfth century by the great temple building king, Jayavarman VII, in honour of his late father and predecessor, Dharanindravarman II. The temple is amongst a select few that has been left largely unrestored (similar to Preah Khan and Ta Prohm for example) so that visitors can seen the vegetation and trees that have enveloped the temple structure. However, I think they still restored some parts of it a few years back just to make it more safer for visitors. This temple is really beautiful and a pleasure to wander through. You get a feel for what Mouhot must have saw when he rediscovered the temples in the nineteenth century! As this temple is very close to Angkor Thom, it’s well worth a visit on your itinerary.
