Ta Som is a small temple built at the end of the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII. The King dedicated the temple to his father Dharanindravarman II who was King of the Khmer Empire from 1150 to 1160. The temple consists of a single shrine located on one level and surrounded by enclosure laterite walls. Like the nearby Preah Khan and Ta Prohm the temple was left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins. In 1998, the World Monuments Fund (WMF) added the temple to their restoration program and began work to stabilise the structure to make it safer for visitors. Mr Wikipedia.

Ta Som is a cute little temple is cute is the right word. Shades of Ta Prohm and Bayon my 2 favourite temples so far.

Must have been too hot as there was literally no one else here at this time of the afternoon.
