The Ancient City of Ta Phrom

Lovia, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia
5 Kudos
Ta Prohm was another project by King Jayavarman VII. During its prime, some 12,000+ people lived inside the walls of the temple. The deities in the temple were changed over time and the latest ones were chosen to please the king’s mother.

Ta Prohm was definitely one of the coolest temples my wife and I saw, and also one of the most popular for all tourists. We’re so glad the temple was kept in its natural state, because it looked magnificent. I have never seen anything like it my entire life – huge trees growing on top of the stone structures with roots draping over the corridors and growing between rocks. It was like nature moved in when the people left; but in harmony with what remained of the temple.
