Ta Som is a mini version of Ta Prohm which tree roots invading temple structure is the distinctive feature. Building time is late 12 century to 13 century. Style is Bayon. Its layout is extremely simple: three concentric enclosures and very little in the way of annex buildings. Major spots nearby are Neak Pean and Preah Khan.
For me, Ta Som's charms are a combination of semi-ruined state, dominant giant trees occuping the temple structure, outstanding sculptures, children in the complex and paintings hanging outside.
