Site Size & Condition: Medium Prasat Prasat Ta Prohm Kel (ប្រាសាទ​តាព្រហ្មកិល - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ta Prohm Kehl)

Another of Jayavarman VII's 4 hospital chapels Arogyasalas situated at the cardinal points, just outside of the main walls of Angkor Thom City. The Chapel of the Hospital is the eastern site, Prasat Tonle Snguot was placed just to the north and Prasat Tro Moung slightly to the west. Ta Prohm Kel is situated approximately 1.5kms south of the city gate, opposite the northwest corner of the Prasat Angkor Wat moat.

The site is in better condition than the latter 2 chapels but not as well preserved as the former and consists of a precarious-looking sandstone tower with a ruined wall and terrace in laterite and small gopura on the east side. A Buddha lintel above the north is defaced although tapestry reliefs and devatas remain in situ.

The Apsara Authority has recently finished the restoration efforts of Ta Prohm Kel, which was started sometime in 2022.
