Angkor Temple Profile: Ta Som

Name: Ta Som

Built: late 12th century

Distinctive feature: giant spung trees growing over crumbling buildings and a distinctive entrance.

Conservatory Body: World Monuments Fund

Visitor's note: Ta Som is the lesser cousin of the infinitely more famous Ta Prohm. Just as beautiful, but not on the beat for most tour buses,  it is surprisingly quiet. When I visited in the mid-morning, I was one of only a few people there.
