Ta Som is a small temple at Angkor. It was built at the end of the 12th century in the reign of King Jayavarman VII. It is located north east of Angkor Thom and east of Neak Pean. The King dedicated the temple to his father Dharanindravarman II (Paramanishkalapada) who was the king of Khmer Empire from 1150 to 1160.
There is a single shrine located on one level and surrounded by laterite walls. The huge fig tree overwhelmed the East Gopura entrance giving you the best spot for photography. If you go to visit the temple in the morning, it provides a good photo opportunity of a tree growing around the gate.
