Ta Keo is a large, temple-mountain style structure, constructed of huge sandstone blocks. It was built by three different kings: Jayavarman V, Jayaviravarman, and Suryavarman I. When Jayavarman V started the temple, it was his state-temple, but unlike other state temples, it was built outside of the main capital area. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu god, Shiva, and seems to have been topped with golden towers, as it was known in ancient times as the mountain with golden peaks.
