Travel to Cambodia (Angkor): Ta Prohm and Vicinity: Photo 7
Not far beyond the bridge is Ta Keo, built about 1000 as the state temple of Jayavarman V. That makes it older than Angkor Wat, the Bayon, or any other works of either Suryavarman II or Jayavarman VII. Although it's roughly contemporaneous with Phimeanakas, in Angkor Thom's royal palace, Ta Keo was built not of laterite but of sandstone floated down the Siem Reap River from mountain quarries 20 miles or more upstream.
