Siem Reap, Cambodia

Ta Keo

Ta Keo (Khmer: ប្រាសាទតាកែវ, Prasat Ta Kêv [praːsaːt taːkaew]) is a temple-mountain in Angkor (Cambodia), possibly the first to be built entirely of sandstone by Khmers.

Ta Keo was the state temple of Jayavarman V, son of Rajendravarman, who had built Pre Rup. Like Pre Rup, it has five sanctuary towers arranged in a quincunx, built on the uppermost level of five-tier pyramid consisting of overlapping terraces (a step pyramid), surrounded by moats, as a symbolic depiction of Mount Meru.
