Ta Keo Ruins

Hello from the ruins of Ta Keo, one of the many temples in Siem Reap. People usually go to the bigger and more famous temples like Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, but I went to this one because you are allowed to enter and climb it. At Angkor Wat, you are not even allowed to touch anything because all these temples are made of delicate sandstone and the Cambodians literally use their bare hands to polish the sandstone carvings. So can you imagine, thousands of visitors touching the carvings each day, one day all the carvings will fade away.

I picked up one of those visitors guides and it had heaps of info yet it is not overwhelming. Everything is concise and very well presented. Been learning heaps and according to the guide, this temple is worth the visit.
