Ta Keo is a temple-mountain, in Angkor (Cambodia), perhaps the first to be fabricated truly of sandstone by Khmers. Ta Keo must be the state temple of Jayavarman V, child of Rajendravarman, who had manufactured Pre Rup. Like Pre Rup, it has five asylum towers orchestrated in a quincunx, based the highest level of five-level pyramid comprising of covering porches (a stage pyramid), encompassed by canal, as a typical portrayal of Mount Meru. Its especially monstrous presence is because of the unlucky deficiency of outside enrichments, as cutting had barely started when the works halted, in addition an expand utilization of view impacts. It is acknowledged a case of the alleged Khleang style.
