Ta Nei

Buddhist Temple in Temples of Angkor

Ta Nei, 800m north of Ta Keo, was built by Jayavarman VII (r 1181–1219). There is something of the spirit of Ta Prohm here, albeit on a lesser scale, with moss and tentacle-like roots covering many outer areas of this small temple. However, the number of visitors are also on a lesser scale, making it very atmospheric.

It can be accessed via a jungle road from Ta Keo through the forest, a guaranteed way to leave the crowds behind. Including the access, allow about one hour to visit Ta Nei.
