Prasat Ta Keo west side

Prasat Ta Keo west side
The impressive State Temple of Jayavarman V is located at the west end of the East Baray. Work on the temple continued through the reign of Jayaviravarman (1002-1010), but stopped in 1010 when Suryavarman I came to the throne. As a result, the temple is uncarved throughout, giving the walls an unintentionally severe appearance that somewhat resembles the great pyramidal monuments of Pagan. The temple's west side is pictured in the photo above.
