Photographer's Note

Takeo Temple was built in the 10th century by Surayavarman I and its construction remains unfinished. It is a pyramid on 5 levels whose total height is 22 meters and is dedicated to Shiva.

You can compare the magnitude of the temple by a person at top left.

It is very difficult to reach on top as the leader steps are very small. Almost all leaders in temples at Siem Reap has small steps. The main purpose of these steps is, that the person have to bow and use its hand to climb the leaders and eventually bow in front of the lord.
