Some 3 km away from the Bayong Koa temple is Ta Nhean (which means 'grandfather Nhean' in Khmer
language) temples group were erected in the early 7th century by King Bhavarman I in homage to the
Hindu god Shiva. Built of brick, lateritic and sandstone, the temple is stylistically different from many of
Cambodia's better-known ancient structures between Prey Khmeng and Sambo Prey Kuk stylist. Further
down the dirt road, there are villages of Preah Bat Chann Chum commune ready to welcome visitors and
tourists with locally homegrown organic fruits for cheap price. At the farmer's market, one can purchase
hiking shoes and hats to climbing the temples. Local tour guide are available to lead the climbing tour
and explain the temple history.
