Ta Keo was one of the first temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park to be built out of sandstone and it consists of five 50 metre high towers and a 22 metre high pyramid. Construction began sometime in the 10th century but it was abandoned and never completed, resulting in a unique and somewhat eerie atmosphere. Experts believe that if it had been completed, it would have been the finest example of Khmer architecture in the world. Today, it offers glimpses of what could have been, with large sandstone blocks expertly carved in small areas. With a large number of steps within the complex, ensure you've eaten and drank plenty of water before beginning your exploration! (Photo Credit: Taylor Simpson, unsplash.com)
