Ta Keo was constructed in late 10th to early 11th century as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Shiva. It has a nickname as “the mountain with golden peaks”. It is made entirely of sandstone blocks.
Ta Prohm was constructed in the mid 12th to early 13th century as a Buddhist monastery. It is thought to have been enormously wealthy with control over thousands of villages and with vast stores of jewels and gold. The Cambodians have left this temple partially un-restored with fig and silk-cotton trees growing from towers and corridors. When we found ourselves in areas without other tourists it felt like you were exploring a newly discovered temple in the jungle.
Dream trip of traveling around the world. We have a general idea of where we are headed but only time will tell where the journey takes us.
Follow along with us on our trip around the world. Many have dreamed of doing it but we have decided to throw caution to the wind and make it a reality. We hope to travel for around 9 months.
