Ta Som temple, east side, cambodia

Ta Som (ប្រាសាទតាសោម, ancestor Som) is a Buddhist temple on the site of Angkor in Cambodia.

Located at the eastern end of the north-eastern baray (Jayatatāka), north of the eastern baray, this modest-sized ensemble was erected by Jayavarman VII in the late twelfth century.

Built in the style of Bayon, it includes two enclosures surrounding the temple itself:

The outer wall, a simple laterite wall, has only two east and west gopura surmounted by four-faced towers. North and South are two fake doors simply decorated. This wall delimits a rectangular space of approximately 200 m by 240 m, in which only two basins remain, on both sides of the east alley.

The inner enclosure, preceded by a moat and accessed by two cruciform terraces adorned with nāgas, is a laterite gallery and sandstone.

The temple itself has a 20m by 30m enclosure surrounding the central sanctuary tower, a prismatic cruciform plan with false floors, and two small "libraries" in the East.
