Not great for a 4 year old. My son and I did not go the the top. The staircase is very steep. But this is still worth a visit with high walls and if you get to the top great views.

This is temple is best known for being one of the tallest at Angkor... with approx. four steep stairways consisting of more than a hundred steps that go all the way to the top tower. It provides good climbing "exercise" for visitors to this temple....More

Ta keo is certainly not the most famous temple on the small circuit, but is still very interesting due to its monumental aspect. Climbing to the upper terrace may reveal difficult for some people, especially if the burning sun of Cambodia is shining. Bring some...More

This temple is included in the small circle tour of Angkor. You can climb the temple. Great views from up there. The stairs are steep, though, so be careful. It’s also very hot if you visit around noon. It takes some of the pleasure away.

This one is a driveby at the moment. You can see people inside, but it's only staff of the restoration crew. A steep staircased temple that would be worth exploring once they re-open it.

This temple was left unfinished and it's much less crowded than the other places. Steep stairs take us to the top where the view is great overlooking the surrounding forests. There's some restoration work going on. I liked this temple quite a lot due to...More

According to our guide, Ta Keo was abandoned because its benefactor did not like the way the light came through...didn't spend much time here, a quick stop over before Ta Prohm.
