Ta Som temple

Published on 25 October 2017 10:41 AM Post By ៖ Apsara National Authority

Ta Som temple was built in the late 12th century during the reign of King Jayavarman VII. The temple is located at the eastern of Neak Pean temple and it has three walls, which has its entrance gate to the central tower.

Ta Som was intentionally destroyed between the 15th or 16th century that made this temple in a state of disintegration and decay for hundreds of years. In 1998, the World Wide Fund (WMF) and APSARA Authority collaborated to restore and completed the project in 2012.

WMF has prepared documents related to Ta Som temple, restoring the structure of the ruined parts as well as the collapsed sections, and facilitating tourist by explaining the history of this temple. In addition, the project team also cleaned the entrance to the central tower and the surrounding courtyard. Especially, the West and East Gateways are well-repaired to ensure the safety of tourists during their travels.

Although the temple is a bit far from other temples, it is rare for tourists to skip because the temple has a beautiful design, a fascinating history, including fantastic scenery for sightseeing.
